I have been a member of the viola section at the Grammy Award-winning Houston Symphony since 2015, and I will start at Orchestre de la Suisse Romande in late 2020 as their new Co-Assistant Principal Violist. I have performed extensively in the US, as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestra musician in such places as Carnegie Hall in New York City, and Lincoln Center in Washington D.C.. I have also joined orchestras and their tours in Europe, China, and South America.

I have 15+ years of teaching students ranging from audition repertoire class in college to general music to 5-year-olds.

About Jarita N.

Jarita Ng joined the Grammy Award-winning Houston Symphony in September 2015, and is appointed Co-Assistant Principal Violist at Orchestre de la Suisse Romande in Switzerland, starting September 2020. Prior to becoming a part of the Houston Symphony, she performed with Verbier Festival Orchestras in Switzerland, Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival Orchestra in Germany, Houston Grand Opera Orchestra, New York String Orchestra, and Hong Kong Sinfonietta. She has performed on stages across the world, including such countries as Germany, Belgium, Austria, Poland, France, China, Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay.

As a multifaceted musician, Jarita found her love for contemporary music during her undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan, after having worked with Roger Reynolds at ONCE. MORE. Festival in 2009. Since then she has collaborated with composers including John Adams, Paul Schoenfield, and Bernard Rands. Her enthusiasm in new music has led her to commission, perform, and record solo or chamber pieces by student composers. In 2014, she was invited to present the American Viola Society (AVS) Gardner Competition winning piece Exit, Pursued by a Bear by Matthew Browne at the 2014 American Viola Society Congress in Los Angeles.

Jarita graduated from Rice University in May 2015 with a master’s degree studying with James Dunham. She was recognized and given scholarship for Best Achievement in Music. She holds a Bachelor of Music in Performance, studying with Yizhak Schotten, and a Bachelor of Science in Biology (with distinction) from the University of Michigan. Upon graduation, she was given the Albert Stanley Medal, the highest honor awarded by the School of Music, Theatre & Dance to the most outstanding graduating senior.

Jarita has 15+ years of teaching students ranging from audition repertoire class in college to general music to 5-year-olds at the popular music preparatory program at Rice University.
