Paula Zarén, Violinist from Sweden
"I feel fortunate to have been invited to take part in one of the COE tours. During my week in Graz, I had the opportunity to be part of a wonderful group of musicians who have inspired me a lot, both individually and as an ensemble.
To experience the dynamics of the orchestra working together was amazing and I feel privileged to be given this chance right at the beginning of my professional life as a musician.
The musicians of the COE have impressed me with their intuitive, communicative and joyful way of making music. This experience has given me so many new ideas and insights, and these will stay with me for a very long time to come."
Paula was born 1987 in Uppsala, Sweden and started the violin when she was only three years old. She studied for three years at the Norwegian Academy of Music and moved back to Sweden in 2010. She is now studying with Prof. Per Enoksson for her soloist diploma at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm.
