About The Founder
Rozanna's Violins was founded by a classically trained violist. Ms. Weinberger has steadily forged new ground, redefining the role of a classically trained violist. Her career has included world premieres of a concerto by Pulitzer Prize winning composer, Tania Leon and appearances at the International Viola Congress, while just as comfortable creating music for performances on the runway during Fashion Week. Her award winning music video, Chromatic Fantasy was screened at International Film Festivals and televised throughout North and South America. Her unique style led to recording a solo viola part by Christopher Mangum accompanying the King Tut Exhibition, touring museums throughout the world. As an improviser, Rozanna has recorded for Arabesque Recordings and North Pacific Music.
Her belief in music as a means to sensitize children to the world around them has led to workshop at the United Nations for over 1500 children. She has been a guest speaker at Juilliard and panelist at Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University and has served as a music consultant for the Head Start and New York Pops Music Outreach programs. Her unique artistic approach coupled by a vision of what is possible and needed in the string world, led to creating the launch of her own line of violins, Designer Violins by Rozanna. The goal was to provide instruments that inspire creative possibilities for 21st century musician.
