Graeme Durovich

Graeme has taught classical violin, viola, and Celtic fiddling for over a decade to children and adults alike. She joined the Nantucket Community Music Center (NCMC) Faculty in 2018, upon returning to Nantucket from graduate studies in Iceland.

Having gotten her start as a violinist, her teachers, Laura Bossert, Yoram Youngerman, and Jonathan Bagg, kindled in her a great love for viola and chamber music. While studying at Wellesley College, Graeme pursued these passions in viola performance and chamber music studies, earning the college’s Billings Performance Award for outstanding talent and ability in music performance and contributions to the community through music.

Spending formative childhood time in Nova Scotia, Graeme grew up listening and playing Cape Breton/Celtic fiddle. She shares her love of this music as both a performer and teacher, and her weekly Celtic Sessions at the NCMC seek to build community through this enrapturing music.

When not playing music or working as the Town of Nantucket’s Recycling/Solid Waste Coordinator, Graeme enjoys being in nature, playing with her godchildren, and exploring connections between science and the arts.

Elizabeth let me play the Red Violin after her performance! The sound was warm and it played with ease. I tried to focus on the instrument but I got completely discombobulated when I realized she had walked away leaving me with the violin. So I just kept playing! Where else in the world could that have happened? Thanks NCMC.

With beautiful practice spaces and meticulously maintained Steinway pianos, a music library stocked full of new and historic scores and a Sibelius-ProTools Independent Learning System!  The Nantucket Community Music Center is the place for learning, exploring, and experiencing music on Nantucket.  Well done!
