He earned a bachelor's degree from Mannes College the New School for Music in 2013, studying under Judith Mendenhall, and is now pursuing a master's degree at the same institution. Mr. Ordovsky has been a participant and prize winner in various competitions and festivals in Russia, Israel, Bulgaria, Germany, and the Netherlands, and made his New York concerto debut in November 2014 with a performance of the Nielsen concerto with the Mannes Orchestera.
