Luanne Homzy

Violinist - Composer - Producer

Internationally acclaimed American/French-Canadian violinist Luanne Homzy is highly sought-after for her technical facility, sensitive musicality, and expansive versatility. Based in Los Angeles, she works as a first-call studio musician, a composer/arranger, and a performing artist.

First Prize winner of the International Chamber Music Competition Hamburg in 2009 (with the Saguaro Piano Trio), and of the Canadian Music Competition, she has performed concerti with orchestras such as the Montréal Symphony Orchestra, the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra and the Colburn Chamber Orchestra. Having served as concertmaster for the Colburn Orchestra, the Los Angeles Virtuosi Orchestra, the American Youth Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, she has worked closely with masters such as Sir Neville Mariner, Gustavo Dudamel, James Conlon, Kent Nagano, and John Williams. She also works as a concertmaster for the studio orchestras in Hollywood with many prominent composers.

Equally at home in many genres, and an improviser in her own right, whether it be classical, jazz, rock, Gypsy, or Eastern European folk music, Ms. Homzy performs worldwide with crossover supergroup Trio Dinicu, hailed as “dazzling” by the San Francisco Chronicle. She has appeared with artists such as Roby Lakatos, Michael Cleveland, the John Jorgenson Quintet, Florin Niculescu, and Tcha Limberger. She has recorded two albums with Trio Dinicu.

After having traveled to Hungary in 2020 and received extensive teachings from the most revered Gypsy violinists, she produced a full-length album of virtuoso Hungarian Gypsy Music, remotely from Los Angeles, with the Miklós Lakatos Gypsy Orchestra in Budapest.

In addition to her performing career, Ms. Homzy composes and arranges jazz, popular, classical, folk, and world music for diverse performing ensembles. Recent works include her composition "Un Souvenir d'hiver" commissioned by the California String Quartet, her string quartet arrangements of “Fiddler on the Roof” and of "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay, and her orchestral arrangement which can be heard on Kid Cudi's track "Kitchen".  She orchestrated and recorded strings for the HBO’s original “Q: Into The Storm”.

She can be heard (and occasionally seen) on motion pictures and TV shows such as “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny”, “Avatar: The Way of Water”, “Oppenheimer”, “The Mandalorian”, ”The Ellen Degeneres Show", "A Star is Born", "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", "Lalaland", "Glee", "The Pirates of the Carribean" and on albums by Leonard Cohen, Lady Gaga, Depeche Mode, Michael Bubblé, Seal, and Kud Cudi. Her diverse styles are featured in many productions, such as her Celtic fiddling in “Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves”, and her bluegrass fiddling in “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse”.

Originally from Montréal, Ms. Homzy studied with Robert Lipsett and Arnold Steinhardt on a full scholarship at the prestigious Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles, and later obtained her Master’s Degree from the Hamburg Hochschule in Germany.
