Tiffany Rose Shanta began playing violin and piano at a very young age. She comes from a musical family, having first been taught by her mother, an accomplished harpist, before being under the tutelage of world renowned violinist and conductor, Luis Haza.
While a member of the American Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic, she toured in France and Germany, and performed at Carnegie Hall.
For many years now, Tiffany has performed for weddings and special events in the Washington, DC and surrounding areas. Some of her past clients and venues include: The King of Saudi Arabia, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Presidential nominee Bob Dole, the Library of Congress, The National Press Club, The Kennedy Center, The Smithsonian, and the September 11th Memorial Concert on the steps of the United States Capitol.
She was a featured soloist at The Lincoln Theater in Washington, DC for The Moth Radio. It was a great honor for her to perform before the "Queen of Disco" Gloria Gaynor this summer, internationally known EDM band Mako at U Street Music Hall, in the Jiffy Lube VIP Lounge before a Dave Matthews Band concert, and with The Trans-Siberian Orchestra in front of an audience of 20,000 people at Capital One Arena.
As a cross-over artist, she specializes in both Classical and Pop/Rock/Jazz music, on both an acoustic and electric violin. Her musical talents range from playing with classical string quartets, to lively rock ensembles, bands, and Country & Western fiddling. She has been in the studio multiple times for singer-songwriter artists.
Tiffany is an active member of locally well-known bands, Vim & Vigor and The Muddy Crows. She can be seen performing at live shows and music festivals with them throughout the year.
