Marija Ivicevic is a grade 10 student at Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts. She began playing the violin at age 5 and is currently study with Tanya Charles Iveniuk at Regent Park School of Music. Music has always played an important role in her life. Her orchestral experience began at the Kingsway Conservatory of Music, where she had the privilege of playing alongside members of such acclaimed Baroque Chamber ensembles as Aradia and Tafelmusik. One of her favourite experiences as a musician was performing and spending a day with Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble. At Cardinal Carter she is involved in various orchestras that perform several concerts throughout the year, in addition to competing at various music festivals including Kiwanis and the Ontario Strings Association.
Marija is honoured to be the recipient of the Charlotte Thorpe Memorial Scholarship and very excited to be playing violin with the Etobicoke Philharmonic Orchestra for their 2019/2020 season.
