Madeleine Hogue, a native of Fayetteville, Arkansas, is an avid performer, educator, and chamber musician. Her love for diverse musical genres has led her to perform throughout the United States, New Zealand, and Europe. Madeleine holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of Arkansas, where she studied with Dr. Er-Gene Kahng. She continued her studies at California State University-Northridge, where she earned a Master’s of Music under the tutelage of Dr. Lorenz Gamma. Throughout her graduate studies, Madeleine served as the first violinist of the Goldberg Honors String Quartet; as concertmaster of the CSU-Northridge Symphony; and as a private instructor for collegiate-level violinists studying in the fields of music education, business, and therapy.
Madeleine has cultivated an active role as a chamber and orchestral musician, performing with ensembles such as the American Youth Symphony, Átomos String Quartet, Keigwin + Company, CSU-Northridge Jazz “A” Band, TEMPO Ensemble, and San Fernando Valley Symphony Orchestra. She has performed in masterclasses led by Harlem Quartet, Frederik Øland of the Danish String Quartet, Henry Gronnier, Jonah Sirota, Elizabeth Pitcairn, and Alexander Markov.
Music education and community outreach are integral to Madeleine’s musical philosophy. In addition to her performance schedule, she works closely with young violinists as a private and group instructor in an effort to give back to the next generation of musicians. Madeleine passionately advocates for the study and performance of works that fall outside the traditional repertoire and canon of Western classical music and takes great joy in exploring the compositions of those whom history often elides.
Madeleine’s instrument is a violin made in 1922 by German luthier, Ernst Heinrich Roth.
