Posted on: January 24, 2018

“Juilliard alum That Viola Kid—AKA Drew Forde—knows what it takes to make a sensation on social media … in the world of classical music,” reads an unsigned Thursday (1/18) post at New York classical radio station WQXR. “So who better than Forde, himself, to drop by our studio and shout-out these five classical artists you should be following right now on Instagram. Esther Abrami … is an award winning violinist and model, but even more than that she has this air of elegance … in everything that she does…. Filip Pogàdy … an Instagram badass. All of his posts are well produced, fun and he’s an incredible violinist. Chloe Trevor … is an Instagrammer from before any of us started … the reigning queen of violin…. There’s this benevolent, kind, giving spirit that is unmatched on the platform. Sara Ferrández … A budding Internet personality, the Berlin-based violist Sara Ferrández highlights … what is like to live as a classical musician and it’s very refreshing. Arnaud Sussman … is a violinist with the Chamber Music Society and if you want to elevate the level of joy in your feed, you need to add him to it.”
