ISABELLE DURRENBERGER, VIOLIN

Isabelle Durrenberger delivers striking performances of communicative strength and sincere artistry. Currently based in New York City, Durrenberger was chosen as a 2023-25 fellow of Carnegie Hall’s renowned Ensemble Connet program.

In 2022, she completed her graduate studies at the New England Conservatory in Boston with Soovin Kim and Don Weilerstein.

She spent the summer of 2023 making chamber music at the Marlboro Music Festival, Lake Champlain and Four Seasons Spring Workshop.

Durrenberger also enjoys exploring music through teaching. She has a private violin studio and serves on the violin faculty at the New England Conservatory Preparatory School where she teaches violin lessons and coaches chamber music.

Both of her parents are pianists and music educators. She began playing piano at age 4, but her parents noticed that she loved singing and thought she might enjoy “singing” on the violin — she began lessons at age 7.

She grew up in Columbus and graduated high school a year early. She completed her Bachelor of Music at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where she was mentored by Jaime Laredo. Her other mentors and influences include Jennifer Koh, Sharon Robinson, Joan Kwuon, Jinjoo Cho, Jan Mark Sloman and Jun Kim.

Durrenberger has received many recognitions and awards for her musicianship. She was the winner of the 2021-22 Borromeo String Quartet Guest Award and performed alongside the quartet in Jordan Hall.

In 2020, she was highlighted as the Featured Young Artist of the Music from the Western Reserve concert series. In 2019, Durrenberger won the First Prize and Performance Prize from the Tuesday Musical Competition.

She was awarded the Milton Preves Memorial third prize at the 2018 Irving M. Klein International String Competition in San Francisco, as well as the first prize in the 2017 Cleveland Institute of Music Concerto Competition.

She has collaborated with the Columbus Symphony, Asheville Symphony, Cleveland Philharmonic Orchestra, Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and Lakeside Symphony Orchestra amongst many others.

Durrenberger was a semifinalist in the 2022 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, a semifinalist in the 2021 Young Concert Artists Audition, a candidate in the 2019 Sendai International Music Competition and 2017 Stulberg International String Competition.

She has participated in masterclasses with Mihaela Martin, Olivier Charlier, David Chan and Noah Bendix-Balgley and attended the IMS Prussia Cove in the class of Gerhard Schulz.

Durrenberger has performed several times at Carnegie Hall as a member of the New York String Orchestra Seminar.

JONATHAN MOYER, ORGAN

Jonathan Moyer is the David S. Boe Chair and Associate Professor of Organ at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. He is organist of the Church of the Covenant in Cleveland and has been a visiting lecturer in organ at the Hochschule für Musik in Lübeck, Germany.

Moyer performs a vast repertoire spanning from the renaissance to the modern era and has concertized throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan.

Clevelandclassical.com has said of Moyer’s playing, “It’s delightful to hear an organ recital where everything seems so right and the playing so much in the service of the instrument and the repertoire.”

His recent concerts include St. Katharinen (Hamburg), St. Johannis (Lüneburg), Schwerin Cathedral St. Jakobi (Lübeck), Marienkirche (Berlin), Ludgerikirche (Norden), Laurenskerk (Alkmaar), the Marktkirchethe (Hannover), Blois Cathedral (France), and J.S.

His performances have been featured on NPR’s nationally syndicated program Pipe Dreams, and he has performed at Conventions for the American Guild of Organists and the Organ Historical Society.

At the Church of the Covenant, Moyer oversees two remarkable pipe organs (Richards Fowkes, Op. 19 and E.M. Skinner/Aeolian Skinner/Holtkamp).

His lauded CD “Voices of the Hanse,” recorded on the 1637 Stellwagen organ in Lübeck, Germany, was released on Gothic Records and features music from 17th-century North German sources. He recently recorded volume 2 on the organ by John Brombaugh at Central Lutheran Church, Eugene, Oregon.

Moyer holds degrees in organ and piano from Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the Peabody Institute of Music and Bob Jones University. His teachers include Donald Sutherland, Gillian Weir, James David Christie, Olivier Latry, Ann Schein and Webb Wiggins.

In 2008, he received the second prize in the Sixth International Musashino Organ Competition in Tokyo, Japan, and in 2005, he was a finalist in the St. Albans International Organ Competition.

Moyer resides in Shaker Heights, Ohio, along with his wife, organist Dr. Kaori Hongo, and sons, Christopher Sho and Samuel Kazu.
