Born into a musical household, Victoria Parker grew up performing and touring with her family quintet. Through this experience, she developed a deep connection to chamber music which remains an integral part of her musical life.

She has been a featured soloist with many orchestras, including One World Symphony, Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, Starry Night Chamber Orchestra, Vermont Mozart Festival Orchestra, North Corner Chamber Orchestra, and Northwest Sinfonia, with whom she recorded a violin concerto composed for her by Roupen Shakarian. She plays frequently with the Seattle Symphony and Seattle Opera and can be heard on many popular albums and motion picture soundtracks.

Victoria is a founding member and leader of North Corner Chamber Orchestra (NOCCO), an unconducted ensemble where collaboration is at the heart of their musical interpretations. Her love for collaboration and interest in interdisciplinary arts shapes many of the projects in which she is involved.

Parker studied at Western Michigan University and Manhattan School of Music.
