Gloriana Wolf

About the Artist

A highly versatile musician, Gloriana Wolf is equally comfortable performing solo repertoire as she is in musical collaboration.  This season Gloriana was a prize winner in the St. Paul Piano Teachers Association and Music Association of Minnetonka competitions.  Last season she was a prize winner in the Thursday Musical solo competition and the La Crosse (WI) Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition, placing second and third respectively.  Gloriana has participated in the Young Artist World Piano Festival for five years, and in the International Institute for Young Musicians.  She has also studied and performed chamber music for six years at the Stringwood Summer Festival and as a member of the Artaria Chamber Music School during the school year, collaborating on piano, violin, and viola.  Gloriana graduated from Breck School and will be attending the Butler School of Music, University of Texas - Austin in the fall, as a student of Anton Nel.  Currently, Gloriana is a student of Dr. Joseph Zins.

Gloriana would like to thank her family and friends for their constant love and support, her teachers--particularly Dr. Joseph Zins for his artistry, wisdom, patience, perseverance, and loving guidance.
