Manami Mizumoto

New York born Manami Mizumoto started her lifelong relationship with music at age 3 on the violin. Early exposure to chamber music sparked in her a devoted love of collaboration. This led to a dual fascination with working with living composers, and bringing back to life little-known works of the past. In recent years, this has manifested in being a founding member of the group Nuova Pratica, a collective of composer-performers working with centuries-old practices of improvisation in the modern day.

Manami is also a founding member of Harmonia Stellarum Houston, which focuses on presenting newly discovered vocal-instrumental works of the 17th and 18th centuries in scholarly informed performances.


In addition, Manami is passionate about exploring different approaches to music making in history and how that can transform the way modern audiences relate to music of the past. Her driving curiosity is in exploring the dialogue between ancient and contemporary thoughts, and she is equally at home on the baroque violin, modern violin, and electro-acoustic setups with Ableton Live.


Manami is a graduate of the Juilliard School where she earned a Bachelor's with Catherine Cho and Joel Smirnoff, a Masters in Historical Performance, and graduated with the Norman Benzaquen Career Advancement Grant. In 2022, she was selected a member of Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, and joined The English Concert as Co-Principal Second Violin in 2024.
