Grammy Award-nominee Caroline Goulding returns to the Sinfonia stage on Friday, Jan. 25, to perform Jean Sibelius’s epic violin concerto.

“Technically brilliant young violinists grow on trees these days, but few have so strong a personality so early,” claimed the Dallas Morning News of Goulding.

At age 20, Goulding has performed as a soloist with some of North America’s premier orchestras including The Cleveland Orchestra, Toronto Symphony, National Symphony, Dallas Symphony, Houston Symphony, Detroit Symphony, New Mexico Symphony, Charlotte Symphony, Louisville Orchestra, Sarasota Orchestra, Buffalo Philharmonic, Columbus ProMusica, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the Cleveland Pops and the Cincinnati Pops.  Aside from her orchestral engagements, Caroline has appeared at venues such as Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall, Lincoln Center, Merkin Hall, (Le) Poisson Rouge and the Kennedy Center.

Along with her orchestral and recital appearances, Caroline has also made her way through national television and radio airwaves on NBC’s Today, MARTHA, hosted by Martha Stewart, PBS’s From the Top: Live from Carnegie Hall, NPR’s Performance Today, From the Top, Sirius Satellite Radio, WNYC New York and CosmoGirl Online. In December 2009, Caroline was named Musical America’s Artist of the Month and received an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2011.

The concert concludes with Beethoven’s rhythmically whimsical and inspiring Seventh Symphony. The brilliant sonority of the orchestral sound, the grandeur of the inner movements and the pulsating rhythmic finale have made this one of the most beloved symphonies in the entire orchestral repertoire. 

Tickets range from $29.50 to $42.50 and can be purchased and printed online or by calling the box office. For more information or to purchase tickets, please go to or call (850) 269-7129.
