Olga Dubossarskaya Kaler (USA)

Praised by critics for her “deep, soulful sound” and “powerful, enchanting renditions,” Olga Dubossarskaya Kaler has toured three continents as a soloist, chamber musician, and artist-teacher, balancing her performing and teaching careers with equal success. She joined the violin faculty of the Cleveland Institute of Music in 2017, following her 15-year tenure at DePaul University School of Music in Chicago.

Olga Dubossarskaya Kaler’s original composition for solo violin, Recitativo and Toccata, was published in 2020 by the Soundwave Music Company, along with her edition of the Solo Violin Sonata by Boris Dubossarsky, her father, a celebrated Moldavian composer. Both works are included in her critically acclaimed 2022 Centaur Records CD release, Seven Ways To Say Farewell. Four out of seven pieces are world premiere recordings.

Dr. Kaler’s scale system for violin and for viola, entitled Scale System for Reluctant Scale Enthusiasts, and her method book, An Effective Method for Teaching and Studying Violin Technique, met with enthusiastic reception from string players and pedagogues worldwide. Both works are published through Amazon, and in an electronic version through Ovation Press.

Kaler holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Northwestern University Bienen School of Music, and her previous degrees are from the New England Conservatory, the Moscow State Conservatory, and the Stolyarsky Special Music School for Gifted Children in Odessa, Ukraine.

Among her violin competition awards are Diploma and the Special Prize for the best performance of the required work “Arioso and Burlesque” by Ottavio Zino at the Rodolfo Lipizer International Violin Competition, 1st Prize at the Northwestern Competition, as well as the 1st
Prize at Thaviu-Isaak Competition, USA.
