Alissa Cheung

  • Edmonton (Alberta, Canada), 1985
  • Composer • Performer (violin)

Alissa Cheung is a member of Quatuor Bozzini, based in Montréal, QC. Her solo and chamber performances have taken her throughout Canada, USA, Europe and Asia, and her work has been featured in the New York Times, The Guardian UK, the Edmonton Journal, the Edmonton Sun, and has been broadcast on British Broadcasting Corporation (UK), Österreichischen Rundfunks (Austria), Yleisradio (Finland), Nederlandse Publieke Omroep (Netherlands), and CBC Radio (Canada).

As a composer, her works have been performed at the Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur (Montréal) by Ensemble Arkea, at the University of Michigan by Arx Duo, percussion duo, and at New York and Chicago by Instruments of Happiness electric guitar quartet. Other works have been performed in Australia by Duo Myburgh-Feakes, in Boston by the Boston String Quartet, and in Switzerland by Duo Luce. She is regularly featured as a composer at C’mon Festival in Edmonton, and upcoming performances include commissions with violinist, Mark Fewer, with ensemble Now and Then, and with Quatuor Bozzini. In these latter works she experiments with improvisational aspects as well as performer’s choice as a way to combine the virtuosity of the performer with the acoustic vision of the composer.
