FREELANCE VIOLINIST, PRODUCER AND EDUCATOR.
With Lebanese, Swiss and German origins and raised in Egypt, Delaney is a musician who feels at home in more than one country and more than one field. A classically trained artist with a Master's degree in Music Technology from New York University (NYU), Delaney is a versatile performer with a love for creative collaboration, exploration and learning. During her time at NYU she dedicated her thesis research to a 'dancer-musician' concept, her personal investigative approach to the skill of live cross-disciplinary performance utilizing real-time translation of dance movement into sound by the same performer.

She is currently based in Brooklyn and has had the pleasure of working with individuals and groups with a wide variety of styles including Gurumiran, Pink Martini, Camila Cabello, Halsey, St. Vincent, Jon Batiste, Smokey Robinson, RPL Chamber Project, Maria Manousaki Quartet, Musica de Camara, Urban Playground Chamber Orchestra, The Tango Fado Project, The New York Arabic Orchestra, 2Cellos, Circa x Survive and a number of other New York- based orchestras, bands and projects.
