Cathy Irons 

VIOLINIST: performer & teacher 

Music provides a space in which to

move and create.

There are no barriers or prejudices,

but a place for openness, honesty

and the freedom to be unique

Hi! I'm a violinist who enjoys performing music from classical to contemporary, collaborating with dancers, composers and artists, creating arrangements, improvising, recording and teaching.


If you have a dream, let's chase it.
