Violinist Eugene Ugorski was already impressing many when, at 12, he performed Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, first movement, at the San Diego Symphony Summer Pops concert. The concerto has become one of his most-performed pieces, played before sellout crowds from Canada to his homeland in Russia. Born in St. Petersburg, Ugorski's family moved to San Diego when he was five.

from his bio:

At just 17 years of age, Ugorski has performed concerti with orchestras in Western Europe, Russia, Canada, the USA, and South America, working with conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Andrey Boreyko, Keith Lockhart, and Roberto Minczuk.

In May 2005 Gergiev invited Ugorski to perform Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto under his baton at the Moscow Easter Festival. The concert was held in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory and was broadcast around the world. Introducing the performance on television, Gergiev announced that "we have a very special treat for Moscow music lovers…an exceptionally gifted young violinist."

The concert was a phenomenal success and resulted in an immediate invitation from Gergiev to perform with the Rotterdam Philharmonic. The Rotterdam concerts met with similar acclaim and Ugorski returned to the orchestra for the 2007/8 season. Upcoming highlights for Ugorski include concerts with the Seoul Philharmonic and Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony, and his UK debut with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

In 1998, at the age of eight, Ugorski made his orchestral debut with the San Diego Symphony and since then has performed regularly in North and South America. Memorable performances include the Boston Pops' opening concert of the 2004/5 season in Boston Symphony Hall with Keith Lockhart, a visit to the Winnipeg Symphony with Boreyko, a series of concerts at the Sao Paolo International Festival in Brazil, and a tour of the Western USA with the Utah Symphony. Recently Ugorski performed a critically acclaimed debut with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and Eri Klas. Next season he will return to the San Diego Symphony for three concerts and will give a solo recital at the Miami Music Festival.

Ugorski began studying the violin at the age of six with Professor Vesna Gruppman. He continues to study with Vesna as well as with Igor Gruppman, one of the world's most respected concertmasters.
