Welcome to Music On The String! Our concept brings on stage extraordinary international artists as well as highly talented young musicians that perform in ensembles of variable geometry. We also create various types of lectures, master classes and career opportunities for young talents.
“…When the bow touches the strings, the most personal life stories are transmitted directly, from soul to soul. No words needed. Just colors, countless colors… And, unfortunately, no internet connection, be it 4 or 5G, can provide that level of connection….”
Our mission is to bring within our music a simple message of hope, of positive energy and light, even in these somewhat dark times. In a way, the show could maybe wait, but LIFE AND MUSIC, THEY MUST GO ON.
Creator of Music On The String
Currently based as a violin professor at the prestigious Music Academy “Schola Cantorum” in Paris, this charismatic artist considers music to almost be her native language as she was born into a family of 15 professionally oriented musicians. After becoming “The Best young musician of Ex-Yugoslavia ” she is personally noticed by Yehudi Menuhin (Laureat Menuhin Association) and develops an impressive career, performing in the USA, Japan, and many European countries.
Yet, deeply touched by the consequences of the war in her hometown Sarajevo, Violeta decides to invest a considerate amount of her lifetime in order to support the cultural and violinistic life in Bosnia, where she creates Music On The String (Festival, Master Classes). Violeta remains highly active in times of the pandemic, through various activities of this artistic movement, including project “Crises and Comedy”, celebration concerts for 250 years of Beethoven, as well as the ongoing “Grande Pausa” series of concerts and lectures. This summer, Miss Smailovic-Huart was named by Centre des Monuments Nationaux de France as Artistic Resident in the Château de Maisons Laffitte where her concerts and master classes were held. Later on, her project ” Music On The String in Cannes” gave the opportunity to highly talented musicians from 11 countries to share again their musicianship and perform live at the concerts fully supported by the Mairie de Cannes.
Violeta plays on a violin made by the famous Italian violin maker, Enrico Rocca.
