Brooke Alford, Artist of the Violin
A Violinist? No. Something fresh and something different? Yes, an Artist of the Violin. Residing in New York City (by way of Atlanta, GA and Princeton, NJ), Brooke Alford is a contemporary national recording and touring Artist of the Violin, entrepreneur, and health and fitness ambassador. Brooke does not refer to herself as a "Violinist", but instead, as an Artist of the Violin, emphasizing a fresh approach and higher standard of playing than your average violin player.
With over 9 years of professional experience in the music business and her artistry, Brooke has had a number of outstanding opportunities including opening for national and international recording artists and entertainers such as Mint Condition, Najee (Nah-G), Will Downing, Paul Taylor, Marion Meadows, Eric Darius, and Comedians Paul Mooney and Dick Gregory, just to name a few.
...
Brooke has also been featured on Trinity Broadcasting Network's (TBN) "Praise the Lord" program with Gospel Artist Rodney Dean Boyden (Boy-den), Atlanta's Inspiration Station Praise 102.5/102.9FM, and on WATC Channel 57's "Atlanta Live" Gospel and Inspirational television program.
...
Brooke began formally dancing at the age of three, studying the piano at the age of five, and then began studying the violin with Violinist, Heather Ritchie just a few years later. Because the unique timbre and tone of the violin were so captivating when listening to Soul, Funk, Classical, Gospel, and Jazz growing up, Brooke knew that this was the instrument for her. In high school, the violin became her primary focus. She then began studying privately with Atlanta Symphony Violinist, Jay Christy, to advance her playing to the collegiate level of study.
Education
Brooke received her Bachelor of Music degree Cum Laude under the prestigious Florida State University College of Music. She was under the instruction of the late Beth Newdome, former Associate Concertmaster of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
...
Brooke is honored to currently possess one of the violins that used to belong to Ms. Newdome.
...
Brooke named this cherished possession "Anaiya Leshae". Both of Brooke's albums were recorded on Anaiya.
...
While studying at FSU, Brooke performed for World Renowned Jazz Violinist, Regina Carter during Mrs. Carter's 2004 Atlanta Jazz Festival master class and participated in the Eastern Music Festival in Greensboro, NC (2004).
...
Brooke also studied under the FSU International Program in London, England with Royal Philharmonic Violinist, Eric Chapman.
...
Today, many children will not have the opportunity to learn, study, and perform music as Brooke did. Some of same music programs that Brooke was able to take advantage in her grade school years no longer exist due to school and government budget cuts. Brooke has decided to be a part of the solution of helping to save music programs in our communities through her effort, "T-Shirts for a Cause".
...
Brooke has accepted the challenge of a very demanding career. She has found a way to manage the physical and mental demands of the entertainment industry both on and off the stage. Brooke's first priority is to be healthy and fit. As a performer and a competitive athlete in 5k and 10k running and in fitness (bikini model and fitness model competitor), Brooke has learned the value of hard work in both fields. Her competitive nature drives her to take challenges by the horns for self-betterment. Positive changes can occur when challenges are presented.
After beginning her formal dance studies at age 3, Brooke then moved to tennis in elementary school, and to track and cross country running (her number one athletic love) in high school. She competed on the high school cross country and track teams and continued her training regimens in college. An injury prevented her from competing while studying for her Violin Performance degree at FSU, but despite the injury experienced then, running is still part of her routine to remain healthy.
Brooke decided to take her competitive fitness drive to an entirely new level in 2012, inspiring the birth of VFiT in 2014. She began training to compete as a fitness and bikini model competitor in her first fitness competition, The FitSciences Championships. Master fitness professional, Kendall Wood trained Brooke for a two month period prior to the competition.
...
Brooke was one of the top 10 bikini model competitors in the competition. This accomplishment motivated Brooke to compete in the East Cobb Chick-fil-A 5k race series in October 2012, where she placed 1st in her division and 4th place overall female; in The FitSciences Health of Atlanta 5k run in June 2013, where she was the overall winner; in the Transfiguration Catholic Church's "Mission Run: Run for their lives" 5k race in November 2013, where she placed 1st in her division, 5th place overall female, and 18th overall runner of 200+ runners; and in February 2014 during the RetOlympics Cardio Tri-atholon competition (run 2 miles, bike 2 miles, and 2 miles on the eliptical) at Retro Fitness of Kingston/Princeton in New Jersey where she placed 1st overall female in the competition.
VFiT is an entity of her artistry in which she uses to promote health and fitness to her fans and listeners by encouraging them to put their health first. "Take care of YOUR health first so that you can be at your best to be a blessing to others. Without our health, we have NOTHING."~Brooke Alford.
The Present Currently, Brooke Alford, Artist of the Violinis working on her third studio album, remaining focused on the promotions of her latest CD, The Viosocalist EP, continuing to build her brand and business Alford Enterprises & Entertainment Group, LLC with her progressive team, helping to save music programs in our communities through her special campaign "T-shirts for a Cause", staying VFiT by choosing a lifestyle of healthy nutrition, running, and advanced cross training.
Brooke Alford, Artist of the Violin is a Super-Sensitive Musical Strings Company endorsed artist.
