On a recent tour with LACO, Victoria’s playing was highlighted in Steve Osborn’s Classical Sonoma review of Ginastera’s Variaciones Concertantes: “…but the real standout was violist Victoria Miskolczy, who made the most of her ‘Variacion dramatica’ by producing a full-bodied sound of searing intensity.”

Victoria has been featured frequently on KMZT’s Sundays Live series from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and has also performed solo recitals throughout the United States, Canada and Australia, where two recitals were aired on national radio, Australian Broadcasting Commission FM. Victoria is also in demand as a studio musician and has played on hundreds of motion picture soundtracks for composers such as John Williams, James Horner and Jerry Goldsmith and on recordings with such popular artists as Barbra Streisand, Madonna and Michael Jackson.

A former part-time faculty member at the University of Southern California, Victoria now teaches privately. She studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Music Academy of the West, the International Menuhin Music Academy in Gstaad, the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, the University of Michigan and the University of Southern California. Victoria was a prizewinner in the 1988 Lionel Tertis International Viola Festival and Workshop at the Isle of Man and a finalist in the 1987 American String Teachers Association Competition. Her teachers have included Donald McInnes, Karen Tuttle, Raphael Hillyer and Alex Todicescu.

Now a US citizen, Victoria lives in Pasadena with her husband, trumpeter David Wailes, and their two Boston terriers, Seamus and Sheba. They spend most of their vacation time in the Finger Lakes region of New York.
