She first came to international attention upon winning the Silver Medal at the 2018 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, where she performed the Tchaikovsky Concerto with the Indianapolis Symphony conducted by Leonard Slatkin. In celebration of her medal, she returned to Indianapolis to perform a special “Gold, Silver and Bronze Medalists Debut” concert. This season’s appearances include the Saint-Saëns Concerto as part of a special “Violin Virtuosos” gala concert with the Greensboro (NC) Symphony Orchestra led by Dmitry Sitkovetsky.

She follows in the distinguished footsteps of her two major violin teachers, who also began their careers with Young Concert Artists: Koichiro Harada (founding first violinist of the Tokyo String Quartet) and Mayuko Kamio. Risa Hokamura is currently a student at the Tokyo College of Music High School, and she was featured on a benefit concert for the school at Tokyo’s Metropolitan Hall.
