Andrei Matorin

The Boston Globe calls Andrei Matorin an “emerging jazz violinist” and featured him in their Critic’s Picks column twice in 2008. Born in Brazil, Matorin began playing the violin at the age of six after moving to Boston. Three years later, having spent a year studying in L’Aquila, Italy, he enrolled at the prestigious Conservatoire de Geneve in Switzerland. After studying four years in Switzerland his return to the United States prompted him to temporarily put his classical studies aside while he explored jazz. It was a world he had never been exposed to before. At fifteen, upon moving to Boston he pursued his newfound love of jazz at The New England Conservatory (NEC) Preparatory School and soon began his professional career. Andrei Matorin was the first violinist ever to graduate from NEC’s Jazz Program. He then enrolled at Berklee College of Music on a scholarship from the World Scholarship Tour to study Jazz Composition and Performance.

At Berklee, Andrei Matorin was honored with Achievement Awards in 2006 and 2008. In addition, he is an alumnus of The Betty Carter Jazz Ahead (2008) Residency Program, an exclusive program that “identifies outstanding, emerging jazz artists in their mid-teens and twenties” from an international pool of applicants.

Andrei Matorin has shared the stage with legendary and up-and-coming jazz greats including Bob Moses, Tiger Okoshi, Rosa Passos, Christian Scott, Oscar Stagnaro, Luques Curtis and Zaccai Curtis, Jason Palmer, and Richie Barshay. His career has led him to perform at renowned venues such as The Lincoln Center, John F. Kennedy Center, Jordan Hall, and Regattabar.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
