Adria Stokes is a Violinist who began her musical journey attending specialized programs developed for inner city public schools. She was soon able to further her education by auditioning for competitive scholarships to attend the Juilliard Music Advancement Program, Bloomingdale’s School of Music and the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music. It was at these institutions where Adria was able to work with Professionals from all over the world who ultimately shaped her into the musician and educator that she is today. She believes that no matter the background, every child deserves access to the arts--most importantly, music; as it ‘transcends all borders’.
