    Winter Song - George Krikes
Born in Moscow, Ada came to the U.S. with her family when she was six years old. With musician parents, her childhood was steeped in classical music as she developed into a virtuoso violinist, winning competitions and earning standing ovations from audiences of 2,000+.
Her life and career were dramatically altered when severe tendinitis and overuse made playing the instrument impossible. For two years, she lived as a normal teenager, not knowing if she'd ever play again.
She discovered Berklee College of Music, and at the last possible moment submitted an application. As she slowly picked up the violin and prepared one of her favorite pieces to perform at the audition, it was as if she had never stopped playing. After her father drove her to Boston and accompanied her on piano, to her amazement she was awarded the school’s highest honor; A Presidential Scholarship (a full ride)
At Berklee, Ada was intrigued by the diversity of people and music and absorbed a variety of genres such as Pop, Jazz, Bluegrass, and even joined a Mariachi band.
One day, sitting on the floor of a Berklee practice room studying a jazz standard, Ada held her violin in her lap and began strumming and plucking it like a guitar. “I had never thought about playing the violin like that, especially while singing,” she says. “It just felt so natural, and I was excited to learn that I could accompany myself.”
Ada lives in LA where she is a Songwriter and Recording/Performing Artist.<br>
