Catherine Manoukian


"Hello and welcome to my website! I’m Catherine, and I play the violin for a living, which often takes me to wonderful and exciting places. I’m from Toronto, Canada, and I share my birthday with Sir Edward Elgar, whose violin concerto is among my favourites, and the Marquis de Sade, whose works, I confess, I've never read. In my (limited) spare time, I enjoy writing, nerd culture of a wide variety (Lost, Star Trek, and Star Wars – it’s true! we can all coexist), and spending time at home with family. I currently split my time between Stockholm, Sweden, and Weimar, Germany, where I live with my husband, Stefan, and our baby son, Johannes."
