Ukranian violinist Myroslava Khomik brings her love of music-making not only to the prestigious concert halls and festivals around the world, but also to the curation and collaboration of multimedia projects. Known for her “virtue of musical sensitivity and beautiful emotion” (Saigon Times), Khomik is passionate about innovative programming, mixing different art forms, and looking for depth beyond creative expression. She regularly participates in premieres of new works, and initiates new commissions inspired by the subjects she feels are particularly important in today’s world. After her tour in South America in 2018 presenting an all-Ukrainian composers program, Khomik was awarded a New Artist of the year prize in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and was featured on various TV and radio broadcasts in the United States and abroad. 

A winner of numerous solo and chamber music competitions (including the Remember Enescu in Romania and the New Names of Ukraine) as well as education and fellowships grants, Khomik’s most recent highlights focus on three new commissions for solo violin and her curated series Muse Ukraine international tours promoting Ukrainian culture through its underrepresented music; performances with the Orchestra del Teatro Goldoni di Livorno (Italy) and Mozart Classical Orchestra (United States), a guest appearance as a featured soloist at the opening of the 33rd International Music Festival of Para in Brazil; curated solo recitals in live international broadcasts presented by the Lviv Philharmonic (Ukraine), Las Vegas Philharmonic and the Broadway World (United States) in 2020-2021. Her solo tours around the globe include performances with Orquestra Sinfonica do Theatro da Paz (Belem, Brazil), Kyiv Kamerata (Ukraine), Orquesta de Camara del Congreso de la Nacion (Buenos Aires, Argentina), Orquesta Filarmónica del Desierto Coahuilla (Mexico), Orquestra Sinfonica EAFIT (Medellin, Colombia), Orquesta Filarmónica de Zacatecas (Mexico), Sinfonica Orquestra de Barra Mansa (Brazil), Orquestra de la Societat de Concerts de Barcelona (Spain), Ho Chi Minh City Ballet and Symphony Orchestra (Vietnam), and Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra (Hong Kong). 

A devoted chamber music advocate, Khomik had the privilege of collaborating and performing alongside many distinguished artists, such as the members of Borromeo, Jerusalem, Talich, Ysaye and Tokyo String Quartets, Midori Goto, Arnold Steinhardt, Oleh Krysa, Carol Wincec, Fred Sherry, Ronald Leonard, Robert Davidovici, Richard O’Neill, and Michelle Zukovsky, among others. She has appeared in chamber music series in Los Angeles and New York (LACMA Sundays Live, Noon to Midnight, Broad Stage Series, Redcat Series, Le Salon de Musiques, Queens New Music Festival, Hunter Chamber Music Series, Hear Now); and in Europe (Incontri in Terra di Siena Music (Italy), Academie de Musique de Lausanne (Switzerland), Aurora Music Festival (Sweden), and Zeist Music Days (Netherlands). 

As an educator, Khomik is driven by the belief in the importance of music in our society and its perpetuating role of bringing depth to the education of young generations. She held master class residencies in Thailand, Brazil, and Argentina with music programs for underprivileged children, taught at the UCLA Help Alpert School of Music, Biola University and Fullerton College, given master classes and guest lectures throughout the United States, Mexico, and in Malaysia, and is an artist in residence at La Sierra University. 

Passionate for entrepreneurial approach to classical music and innovative arts education, together with her international music colleagues during the pandemic, Khomik co-founded one of the largest online music festivals to date, the Nextus Festival, a unique project organized by musicians from around the globe launching in 2021. 

As a performer and an avid researcher of the forgotten musical gems, Khomik has been dedicating much of her concert activities throughout the years to promoting Ukrainian culture through music and artistic presentations, raising much needed awareness for her homeland’s turbulent history and rich cultural heritage. Over the past year, after initiating the series of concerts in Los Angeles — LArtists 4 Ukraine — for local fundraising efforts with the artistic community, and co-founding the global musician’s initiative Help Musicians Ukraine, Khomik completed several performance tours in Europe and the United Kingdom presenting hercurated recital series Muse Ukraine to help raise awareness of Ukrainian composers, culture, and to raise funds for humanitarian aid.
