Ivan Trabka started his career as a cellist in 1996 at the age of eight. He studied cello performance at UMass Amherst, under the instruction of Astrid Schween, the current cellist for the Juilliard Quartet. He has also participated in several masterclasses with Raif Dantas, Mihai Tetel, Bernhard Greenhouse, and Martha Gershefsky.

Ivan attended the Boston University Tanglewood institute orchestra and chamber music workshop in 2006, and in 2012 he participated in the Castleman Quartet Program at SUNY Fredonia, under the direction of Charlie Castleman, of Eastman School of Music.

He has performed with the Cape Ann Symphony in 2016 and 2017, under conductor Yoichi Udagawa. He has also performed at the Mahaiwe Theatre, the Colonial Theater, Symphony Hall in Boston, and the Longy School of Music.

At age 20 he was the featured soloist with the Stockbridge Sinfonia, when he performed the Lalo concerto at the First Methodist Church in Pittsfield.

In 2020 he served as the teacher of the strings program in the Berkshire Hills school system, which encompassed leading all string groups from grades 2-12 at Muddy Brook Elementary, W.E.B du Bois middle school, and Monument Mountain high school from 2/3/20- 3/14/20. He refers to it as the most profound honor and the greatest challenge of his professional life. He now teaches privately at his studio in Alford.

Seating and bar open at 7 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30. This event is indoors.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
