Portuguese violinist Joana started playing violin aged 4 and soon joined the Aveiro Conservatoire of Music where she studied with Ana Sofia Mota until she finished school. During the final 2 years, she also studied the viola with Hugo Diogo.

In 2007 she went to the ANSO in Lisbon to do her bachelor and after that she continued her studies at the Royal College of Music, London, with Radu Blidar for her Masters Degree, which she completed in 2013. From 2016 to 2018 she also studied with Gordan Nikolic in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
As chamber music is one of her main passions, Joana was a member of the Sattler Quartet for 2 years and attended many festivals such as Harmus Festival, Stift International Festival, Aurora Chamber Music and Lake District Chamber Music. Currently she co-manages Artisti Con brio, a flexible string ensemble.
She also participated in Masterclasses for solo and chamber music, given by distinguished Professors including Gordan Nikolic, Daniel Rowland, Leonid Kerbel, Zoltan Santa and the Chilingirian Quartet.
Joana has been a member of several orchestras including Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, Southbank Sinfonia, Britten Sinfonia, Garsington Opera, Orpheus Sinfonia, Chipping Campden Festival Academy Orchestra, Philharmonia Amsterdam.
Her interest for historical performance has led her to some festivals such as Dartington, EUBO Mobile Academy and Freiburg Barockorchester Academy where she had the opportunity of studying with wonderful violinists such as with Petra Müllejans, Margaret Faultless and Adrian Butterfield. She also plays regularly with period ensembles such as Brandenburg Sinfonia and Feuersinfonie(Utrecht Oude Muziek Fringe Festival).In 2016 she received a Career career development bursary from Help Musicians UK and performed complete Beethoven Sonatas.
Whilst studying in London,Joana was a recipient of the Gulbenkian Scholarship. Now she is grateful to have the support of the Harrison Frank Foundation, for the loan of a Maurizi violin.
