Originally from San Diego, California, violinist Kimberly Durflinger is based in Ontario where she works as a substitute violinist for the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra, I Musici de Montréal, and the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony. She has made it to the semi-finals and finals in auditions for major symphonies such as the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Opera Orchestra, Quebec Symphony Orchestra, I Musici de Montréal, and the Grand Rapids Symphony.
Kimberly is also passionate about being involved with genres of music outside the realm of traditional classical music. She is a member of the rock band Vaerisa based in Toronto, can be heard on the soundtrack for an episode of Star-trek, performed punk-rock music at the House of Blues in San Diego, and recorded the theme song to the video game Renaine which will be released on the Nintendo Switch.
In her free time, Kimberly enjoys dancing Argentine Tango, baking pies, and cuddling her three chubby guinea pigs.
