Michi Wiancko

Violinist Michi Wiancko is a winner of the 2002 Concert Artists Guild International Competition. Featured as an “Artist to Watch” on the cover of the January 2007 issue of Symphony magazine, the Cleveland Plain Dealer credits her with playing that “melts seamlessly into tender utterances.”

Wiancko, a Southern Californian, holds degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Juilliard School where she studied with Robert Mann. She has earned an international reputation for her performances throughout the world including such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and the Kennedy Center. Wiancko consistently pushes the boundaries of the classical repertoire and explores new genres as a singer, violinist, and composer for her own band, Kono Michi.
