Sindy will also make her debut at the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival and perform a solo recital at the Heidelberger Frühling International Music Festival.

Sindy Mohamed was born in Marseille in 1992. Although she does not come from a musical family, she received her first viola lessons at the age of eight and decided early on to make music her profession. After graduating from the Conservatoire de Marseille, Sindy continued her studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris and at theHannsEisler Academy of Music. Finally, she completed her training in the "Young Soloists" study program at the renowned Kronberg Academy with Tabea Zimmermann.

She further sharpened her musical profile through her participation in numerous international masterclasses and festival academies such as the Summer Festival Salzburg, the Seiji Ozawa International Switzerland Academy, and the European Chamber Music Academy. There she worked with Daniel Barenboim, Antoine Tamestit, Roberto Diaz, Morten Carlsen, Nobuko Imai, Jean Sulem, Sadao Harada, Pamela Frank and Tatjana Masurenko, among others.

Sindy plays on a viola by Matteo Goffriller, Venice circa 1700, generously loaned by the Beare's International Violin Society, in London.
