Pauline Kim Harris

New York City, NY      

Hailed by the New York Times for her "lightning-fast reflexes" and "breathtaking" performances, Pauline Kim Harris has been notably described as "a sorceress" of the violin. A Grammy-nominated artist (Universal/Decca), she engages her audiences world-wide in ground-breaking classical and genre-bending crossover, to the envelope-pushing experimental/avant-garde.


Most recently, her recording of John Zorn’s "Passagen" for Solo Violin was released on Tzadik and will be featured LIVE at the Joyce Theater in a new work by the critically acclaimed choreographer, Pam Tanowitz in February 2014.


As the first violinist of the Alchemy Quartet, Ms. Harris completed a European tour as part of the "Zorn@60" concerts in London, Gent, Rotterdam and Warsaw, as well as at Lincoln Center, Miller Theater and the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. 


She is a member of the S.E.M Ensemble, Ostravska Banda, O.B. Sq, Ensemble LPR, the Wordless Music Orchestra and the "enterprising violin duo," String Noise with husband, Conrad Harris, of the FLUX Quartet.


Currently Music Director of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, she performed with the Orion String Quartet at the Joyce Theater.
