Angeline Branson, violinist, originates from Bordeaux, France where she graduated from the Conservatory of Music with a gold medal in violin performance, a silver medal in chamber music and a teaching certificate in solfege & musicianship.
At the age of eighteen, she obtained a teaching position at the Pessac School of Music in France, and she started her performing career as an orchestra violinist with the Bordeaux Opera.
She later continued her musical studies at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she studied with Zaven Melikian and earned a Master’s degree in violin performance. She played with the Western Opera Tour and the San Francisco Opera.
But her greatest satisfaction comes from teaching the violin. She was a teacher at the Lycée Francais (French Highschool) La Perouse for ten years.
Today, she lives on the Peninsula with her husband, her energetic fourteen year old son and her even more energetic Wheaten Terrier.
