A pupil of David Takeno and Zakhar Bron, Priya Mitchell in 1994 was chosen for the European Concert Halls Organisation Rising Stars' series. This led to performances as soloist with such orchestras as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and London's Philharmonia. She has also played with the Belgian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Sinfonia Varsovia, the Moscow Philharmonic, the Australian Chamber Orchestra and many others. Much in demand as she is, she has performed chamber music at international festivals, such as those in Schleswig-Holstein, Risør, Lockenhaus, Heimbach, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Stavanger and Lugano. She also directs her own chamber music festival in her home town of Oxford, which she started in 2010. The festival's composer-in-residence in 2018 is the Latvian composer Pēteris Vasks. This concert season Priya Mitchell will be performing violin concertos by Mendelssohnin and Glass in Stockholm, Schumann's concerto in Düsseldorf and concertos by Mozart in Munich.
