Timothy Chooi has garnered huge critical and public acclaim, most recently when he won Second Prize at the 2019 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Belgium. He had already made a name for himself having been awarded numerous prizes, among them First Prize of the 2018 Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition in Germany.

In 2018 he also won the ‘Prix Yves Paternot’ of the Verbier Festival, a prize which recognizes the most promising and accomplished musician of the annual Academy for young professional musicians, earning him his debut as a solo artist in the 2020 Verbier Festival.

Timothy’s upcoming solo engagements highlights are debuts and reinvitations with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Deutsche Sinfonieorchestrer-Berlin at the Berlin Philharmonie, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Belgian National Orchestra and the Russian National Orchestra.

Timothy performs on the 1717 Windsor-Weinstein Stradivarius on loan from the Canada Council for the Arts Musical Instrument Bank.
