Svetlana Tsoneva moves to the US in 1998, as a full scholarship recipient to the Idyllwild Arts Academy in California. There, as a student of Mr. Todor Pelev, she has the opportunity to audition for radio show From the Top, which tapes and later, airs her Boston performance, on NPR/WQXR. The audience of the show awards her the “Best Performance” Award. Later that year, Svetlana is accepted in the studio of Madame Michèle Auclair at New England Conservatory, where she remains until 2004. In August of the same year, the young violinist moves to New York to embark on her Master of Music degree, and instantly falls in love with the music scene and energy of the city. At first, she resides at International House, on Riverside Drive—a vibrant, historic community and institution, which has inspired and nurtured generations of artists, diplomats, and academics from all over the world. She becomes a Performing Artist in Residence there, as well as the only artist participant in their Women’s International Leadership program during the 2004-2005 season.
