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.
