Based in New York, violinist and violist Amelia Sie is a virtuosic and adventurous performer on both Baroque and modern instruments. As a historical performer, she has appeared on stage with Juilliard415, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Trinity Baroque Orchestra, and Teatro Nuovo, among others. Equally comfortable on the modern violin, Amelia made her first public appearance with the Seattle Festival Orchestra at the young age of 8 and has since performed as a soloist with orchestras including the Seattle Symphony and the Coeur D’Alene Symphony.
Amelia is a founding member of the Arrow Quartet, a historically informed ensemble that explores and performs music across genres with the goals of expanding the historical performance music canon and creating a more inclusive concert experience. Notable engagements include Roger Williams University, the Dedham Museum & Archive, and Community Strings Project in Rhode Island.
Known for her exuberant and fiery performances, Amelia specializes in the performance practice of Italian virtuoso music from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. Her most recent solo program explores the shifting language of Italian violin virtuosity over the centuries and features music from Marini to Paganini. She is also interested in the performance practice of music from the Classical to early Romantic periods. 2021 saw her solo viola debut performing Chevalier de Saint-Georges’ Sinfonia Concertante Op. 10 No. 2 with Juilliard415.
Amelia received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Violin Performance from New England Conservatory, where she studied with Paul Biss, Miriam Fried, and Soovin Kim. She graduated in 2023 from the Juilliard School with a master's degree in Historical Performance, where she studied with Cynthia Roberts, Elizabeth Blumenstock, and Rachel Podger. Amelia is honored to have been named a Mercury Chamber Orchestra Mercury-Juilliard Fellow for the 2023-24 concert year, as well as a Handel+Haydn Society Stone Fellow for the 2023-24 and 2024-25 concert years.
Amelia proudly performs on a Peter Westerlund modern violin and a Timothy Johnson baroque violin.
