SERGIO I. MUÑOZ LEIVA


Chilean violist Sergio Muñoz is an advocate for dialogue and collaboration, which he realizes in music through his love for chamber music and education. His long-term dream is to create an organization that will provide chamber music education to young Chilean musicians and will revitalize the chamber music scene in Chile. Building community through music is one of Sergio's deepest passions and he advocates for a more accessible concert experience both in the concert hall and in unconventional venues. As a trilingual citizen of the world, Sergio finds inspiration in the fascinating subtleties of language and semantics, foreign languages, and their relationship to music.

Sergio Muñoz is a graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy and holds degrees from the New England Conservatory and the Eastman School of Music. His musical mentors are Penelope Knuth, David Holland, Dimitri Murrath, Kim Kashkashian, and Carol Rodland. He is currently pursuing his Doctorate of Musical Arts as a C. V. Starr Doctoral Fellow at The Juilliard School under the tutelage of Carol Rodland.
