Yukiko Ogura


Yukiko Ogura was born in the beautiful and historic city of Nara in western Japan. Having studied the violin at Kyoto City University of the Arts, she became a member of the Kobe City Chamber Orchestra, an orchestra specializing in string repertoire. Encouraged by Nobuko Imai, she became more interested in the viola, eventually giving up the violin completely in order to study with Mazumi Tanamura in Tokyo. She emigrated to the USA in 2000 and continued her studies there with Li-Kuo Chang and Yuko Mori at Roosevelt University in Chicago. She became the violist of the Eusia String Quartet that subsequently won the gold medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in South Bend, Indiana in 2001. In the same year, Yukiko was appointed a member of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. During her tenure in Chicago, she appeared as a chamber musician with members of the CSO, and also with artists such as Pinchas Zukerman, Lynn Harrell, Joseph Silverstein, Arnold Steinhardt, Lang Lang and the Vermeer Quartet. Yukiko moved to London and joined the Philharmonia Orchestra in 2015.
