Minas Berberyan

Minas Berberyan was born in Sofia, Bulgaria. At the age of 9 he was accepted to the Special Music School in Sofia, where he studied with Joanna Strateva, later continuing his studies at the Bulgarian National Academy of Music, studying under Professor Josef Radionov.

Minas gained his first professional experience whilst still a student, working as a freelance player with both the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra and the Bulgarian Radio and Television Orchestra.

In 1994 he moved to South Africa, where he joined the National Symphony Orchestra of the South African Broadcasting Corporation in Johannesburg, as Assistant Concertmaster.

Towards the end of 2001 Minas, together with his wife Erna (also a violinist), decided to move to Australia, where he gained a position with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.

Minas is an avid teacher and educator, teaching both violin and viola, as well as conducting the Adelaide Youth Sinfonia.

Minas is supported by Merry Wickes via our Musical Chairs program.
