Agata Tuchołka was born in Krobia, a small town near Poznan, Poland, where she started playing the flute at the age of 12.
She has graduated from Musikhögskolan i Malmö, Lund University with a master’s degree and completed her education with a postgraduate performance program there, studying for prof. dr. Anders Ljungar-Chapelon.
Awarded with a full study scholarship, she also started a doctoral program at the Hartt School of Music, University of Hartford, USA.
Agata collaborated with many professional orchestras already since she was a bachelor student. First, she had a chance to play with the Musical Theatre Orchestra, Opera House Orchestra, Collegium F and L’Autunno Orchestra in Poznan and on top of that with the Wroclaw Symphony Orchestra and Leopoldinum Chamber Orchestra. Later, after moving to Sweden she has started to collaborate with Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, Kristianstad Musical Theatre and at the moment, apart from being one of the core members of Ars Nova Ensemble, she also plays with The String Theory, a chamber orchestra that tours with Swedish indie folk musician, José González.
Agata has been playing modern music pieces since her early years at the Academy of Music in Poznan. While studying in Malmö with prof. Anders Ljungar-Chapelon, she was given the opportunity to perform the works that are far from the classical, conventional music world, broadening her repertoire immensely. Ever since she has played pieces of Saariaho, Ferneyhough, Boulez and Stockhausen, among many others. Agata has become an Ars Nova Ensemble member in 2017.
Apart from freelancing, she works as a music teacher at one of the primary schools in Malmö.
