Val Vigoda is a transformational musician that had a very traditional and classical training until she joined the army. Her natural curiosity and love of learning, combined with a rebellious spirit, led to a highly unusual educational path: skipping three years ahead in school, she headed to Princeton at age 15, and joined Army ROTC to pay for college. The discipline she learned in the military served her very well and switched from classical to electric violin. She became world renowned violinist and performer, and now she is expanding her reach in the realms of performing, writing and speaking: writing with new collaborators, spreading her wings as a solo performer and in-demand musical keynote artist, as well as Off-Broadway actor-musician. Listen to learn more about how she broke away from her regimented rule a-biding life to gain her own fulfilling career as a transformational musician, and how she is now sharing her life’s story to inspire others.
