A native of Troy, Michigan, Steven Lubiarz moved to Canada in 2003 to join the second violin section of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and the Bell'arte Strings. Prior to moving to Canada he was a member of the New World Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas in Miami Beach, Florida. While completing his master's of music in violin performance and orchestral studies at Roosevelt University's Chicago College of Performing Arts, Lubiarz was a student of Cyrus Forough and Joseph Golan and was a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago.

Lubiarz, who has been playing the violin since he was five years old, has performed in the Czech Republic, Austria, and throughout Japan. At DePauw, he was a student of Stephen Boe and Dan Rizner. In addition to performing, Lubiarz is the artistic director of the St. Roch Chamber Music Festival in Caseville, Michigan and teaches at the Mount Royal College Conservatory in Calgary. Lubiarz performs on an 1897 Leandro Bisiach, which was a gift from his first teacher, the late Anne Dodge.
