Efrat is a professional violinist, violist, singer, arranger and composer with performance
experience in many styles and settings. She resides in New York and works as a performing
artist and teacher.
She took up the violin at age 7 and was immediately drawn to the beauty within the variation
of so many musical styles. Three years later, she became the youngest person to solo with the
Oak Ridge Symphony, and at age 11 was the youngest person ever admitted into the Knoxville
Youth Orchestra. As her musical studies progressed, she was especially enthralled by groups
like the Kronos Quartet who were blending jazz, classical, and African musical styles, but
she also enjoyed everything from Mozart to Madonna. She learned klezmer and Israeli music
from her father, dabbled in folk and rock with a cellist/singing buddy from down the street,
and took every opportunity to learn and play bluegrass, country, and any other genre with
which she came into contact.
Accepted into and offered full scholarships by the top classical violin schools in the country,
Efrat settled on Indiana University. While pursuing her BA there, she also was a member of
the Shira Festival Orchestra in Israel, conducted by Zubin Mehta under the direction of Lorin
Maazel. After a forced break from music due to injury, she resumed her studies at the University
of Tennessee, from which she received a master’s degree in Music Performance.
After graduation she moved to NYC to continue her career in music. On top of her work as a violinist,
violist, and strings composer and arranger Efrat also pursued her love of singing and jazz.
She was recruited into the alt-roots ensemble Spuyten Duyvil for a few years. She also works
with and records for other bands, including Bobtown, Sebastien Kole, pop-icon Ashanti, and many more.
