Praised by the international press for her “passion, empathy and precision” and her “outstanding” performances, violinist Rachelle Hunt has appeared as a soloist with orchestras throughout the United States, Europe, and South America. She has been a top prize-winner in numerous international and national competitions, including the Kingsville and Corpus Christi International Competitions. Rachelle has been presented as a soloist and chamber musician at such venues as the Concert Hall and Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center, the Frankfurt Radio Hall (Germany), the Romanian Athenaeum in Bucharest, and Casa de la Música (Ecuador), as well as being featured on the nationally broadcast “From the Top” on NPR, several German radio stations, and TV in Venezuela and Colombia. Her recordings of chamber works appear in the digital Mozart Archives (Salzburg) and Beethoven Archives (ARTE) as well as the ARD Mediathek in Europe, and she is regularly featured on digital concert venues such as ARTE Concert and Stage@Seven. A native of Virginia, Rachelle is delighted to return to the Appalachian Chamber Music Festival for a third season.


After graduating from Rice University, summa cum laude, Rachelle was awarded a Fulbright Grant to study at the Robert Schumann Hochschule in Germany, where she earned both the Konzertexamen Diploma and Chamber Music Certificate with the highest honors. In addition to her dozens of solo and chamber music concerts around the globe each season, she has been a tenured member of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony (hr-Sinfonieorchester) in Germany for over a decade and is on faculty at the Conservatory in Frankfurt (Dr. Hoch's Konservatorium).
