Marcin-SwobodaViolist Marcin Swoboda has loved and practised music since he was four years old and, like any good love affair, he has left and returned to it many times over.

Since 2002, however, he has been an active performer in North and South America as well as Europe. Marcin is keenly interested in many styles of music and has performed with a number of early music and contemporary ensembles including Classical Music Consort and Quatour Molinari. He is also a founding member of Lovers are People, a Montreal-based rock band. In 2008, Marcin acted as the principal violist of the Orquestra Sinfonica do Estado de Sao Paolo which is often hailed as South America’s leading professional symphony orchestra.

Marcin is the currently assistant principal violist of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and completing a doctorate in music performance at McGill University.
