Stephanie Moorehouse is a violinist in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Recently moved from Los Angeles, Stephanie performed at Disneyland, San Bernardino Symphony, and Kaleidoscope Chamber Orchestra. During her time in California, Stephanie had the opportunity to study with Lorenz Gamma, Juilliard viola faculty Karen Dreyfus, and LA Chamber Orchestra Concertmaster Margaret Batjer. Stephanie has performed under the baton of: John Debney, Danny Elfman, Michael Giacchino, Mark Isham, Christopher Lennertz, Joel McNeely, Diego Navarro, John Powell, Brian Tyler, Richard Sherman, Hans Zimmer, and John Williams. Stephanie has also had lots of experience performing on some of LA’s most famous sound stages such as: Warner Bros. Eastwood Scoring Stage, Boulevard Studios Hollywood, The Bridge, and Scott Franfurt’s recording studio. She also had the opportunity to record Deadmau5 most recent album Where’s the Drop?, perform with Andrea Bocelli and Lindsey Stirling.

Before she traveled to California, Stephanie obtained a Bachelor’s degree in violin performance from the University of Texas at Arlington. She studied with violinist Dr. Martha Walvoord and was given many opportunities to perform alongside faculty and visiting artists. In 2010, Stephanie’s string quartet was able to travel to the ASTA convention in California with the string faculty of UTA. They gave a performance in a lecture given by the school’s head of the music department, Dr. John Burton. Stephanie also participated in a performance with Dr. John Burton later that year in a chamber series concert and in master classes with David Perry, Dr. Andrew Jennings, and Jennifer Walvoord.

Outside of music school, Stephanie has taken an interest in exploring other genres of violin performance including fiddling. She auditioned for the Grapevine Opry at 17 and began performances with the band in 2007. A few years later, Stephanie was awarded “Instrumentalist of the Year” three years in a row which lead to her being inducted into the Hall of Fame amongst artists: Julianne Hough, Matt Jenkins, and Keith Anderson.
