Geneva is a New Zealand-born American violinist lauded for “remarkable mastery of her instrument” (CVNC) and hailed as “clearly one to watch” (Musical America). She has forged a reputation as a musician of consummate artistry whose performances speak from and to the heart. Named a BBC New Generation Artist (2022-24), Geneva is also the recipient of a 2022 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award and a 2021 Avery Fisher Career Grant.

In August 2023, Geneva made her BBC Proms debut with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Jaime Martin; the 2023-24 season includes further performances with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and debuts with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre National de Bordeaux Aquitaine, Kremerata Baltica (alongside Gidon Kremer in Schnittke’s Concerto Grosso No.1), as well as the San Diego Symphony, Santa Rosa Symphony and Orquesta Filarmónica de Jalisco.
