Ms. Deutsch’s Project: CLASSIFIED is gaining significant attention with classical music presenters as well as with local clubs, theatres, and pop music series. Project: CLASSIFIED targets the most recent generations of Americans who have not grown up with an appreciation for, or knowledge of classical music. With a mixture of classical and crossover, dressed down and performed in a familiar setting – such as a bar, restaurant, club, or outdoor venue, Lindsay Deutsch is paving the way for today’s artists to reach a whole new generation of audience members.

This “one-woman show” has reinvented the traditional classical violin recital by playing the great classical repertoire alongside her own unique arrangements of pop, jazz, folk, and rock. Lindsay’s down-toearth and humorous conversation, in addition to her amazing violinistic abilities, bridge the classical and popular aspects of music, resulting in an astounding performance of virtuosity, groove, elegance, and energy.

Deutsch frequently appears as a guest soloist with American and Canadian symphonies. Recent orchestral engagements include the Colorado, Fort Worth, Missoula, New West, Las Cruces, Pensacola, Irving, Cape, Knoxville, South Carolina, West Virginia Symphonies as well as the Los Angeles, McGill, Portland and Boulder Chamber Orchestras.

Her movie credits include playing the solo violin soundtrack for the movie, “The Good Shepherd” starring Robert De Niro.

Ms. Deutsch feels strongly that the young people of today need to have opportunities to be exposed to the world of classical music. In 2007, Lindsay and her sister, Lauren, co-founded a non-profit organization, the Classics Alive Foundation,, dedicated to building classical music audiences. The Youth Orchestra Residency Program, now in its 4th year, has grown into a popular nationwide program for youth orchestras in which Ms. Deutsch is actively involved. As a chamber musician, Ms. Deutsch has collaborated with such musicians as Gil Shaham, Jeffrey Kahane, Cho-Liang Lin, Arnold Steinhardt, Chee-Yun, Alisa Weilerstein, Gary Hoffman, and the St. Lawrence String Quartet.
