An award-winning 17-year-old prodigy and regular performer on National Public Radio’s From the Top, Brown plays on a 1679 Guarneri violin loaned to him by the Stradivari Society. As the grand prize winner at the 2016 ENKOR International Competition in London, he earned the highest score in the competition’s history across all ages.
