Lindsay Ann Deutsch (born November 28, 1984) is an American violinist.[1] A native of Houston, Texas, Deutsch moved to Los Angeles at age 15 to pursue her performance career.[2]

Deutsch made her solo orchestral debut at the age of 11 with the Clear Lake Symphony in Texas. Deutsch has performed throughout the U.S. and Canada with such symphonies as the Canton Youth Symphony in Ohio, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, California Philharmonic, Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony, San Diego Chamber Orchestra, Knoxville Symphony, Boulder Chamber Orchestra, New West Symphony, McGill Chamber Orchestra in Montreal, National Academy Orchestra, and Oakville Symphony in Ontario, Canada.[3] Additionally, she regularly performs at the annual Siletz Bay Music Festival in Lincoln City, Oregon.

She is actively involved in outreach programs to present classical music to inspire young audiences and revitalize classical music in general. Lindsay Deutsch's movie credits include the violin sound track in the 2006 movie The Good Shepherd starring Robert De Niro.

Deutsch received national attention in April 2005 when her 1742 Sanctus Seraphin violin, on loan from the Mandell Collection of Southern California, valued at $850,000, was stolen from her car.[4] It was returned five days later after she offered a $10,000 reward.[5]

In addition to her music, Lindsay Deutsch won the gold medal in the World Junior Olympic Racquetball Championships in 1997 and was selected to the 2000 U.S Junior Olympic Racquetball Team.

Lindsay Deutsch currently studies with Robert Lipsett in Los Angeles.
