Baroque violinist Naomi Dumas has appeared throughout North America and Europe as a soloist, chamber musician and as a member of ensembles including Il Pomo d’Oro, Le Concert de la Loge, Arion Baroque Orchestra, and the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra. She is a graduate of the Historical Performance program of The Juilliard School and the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, where she had the privilege of studying with Cynthia Roberts, Rachel Podger, and Amandine Beyer. She was recently selected as a finalist at the International Music Competition of the Loire Valley and was appointed principal violin of Les Ornements, formerly the Orchestre de Chambre de Colmar, in 2022.
