Monika Warchol

Monika Warchol completed her graduate work at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 2009. Since graduating, Monika has maintained an active schedule as a freelance musician around the Bay Area. A big fan of new music, Monika is a member of Ensemble Parallele and has performed with sfSound and Irregular Resolutions. She also plays with the Magik*Magik Orchestra and has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Sting, Chicago, and local singer/songwriter John Vanderslice.

In May 2009, Monika gave the world premiere of David Garner’s Horn Concerto. In November 2008, she was selected for the the Winds and Brass Professional Training Workshop through Carnegie Hall. Monika's summer engagements have included the Youth Orchestra of the Americas, Aspen Music Festival, Eastern Music Festival, Oberlin-in-Italy, International Chamber Music Workshop, Lyric Academy in Rome, and Junges Klangforum. Originally from Georgia, she was a winner of the Savannah Symphony’s concerto competition.
