The Indiana University Jacobs School of Music has appointed Grigory Kalinovsky to its string department. The violinist is set to join the Bloomington school as a professor of music in autumn 2013.

Kalinovsky began violin studies in his native St Petersburg with Tatiana Liberova, and later trained at the Manhattan School of Music in New York with Patinka Kopec and Pinchas Zukerman. He has been a soloist with orchestras in the US, Germany, South Korea, Canada and South Africa, and has performed chamber music at festivals in Europe and the US.

Kalinovsky currently teaches at the Manhattan School of Music. He is also on the faculty of Pinchas Zukerman's Young Artists Program in Canada and the Heifetz International Music Institute at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia.
