Last weekend, the Philharmonic held auditions for open violin and viola positions. Twelve competed for the violin positions, and eleven competed for the viola positions. Auditions are "blind," meaning that the panel of judges, made up of Maestro Hege and principal string players, can see neither the auditioning musicians nor their resumes. Out of those who auditioned, one violinist and four violists were taken on as new members of our orchestra!
We are happy to announce the names of our new musicians:
Robert Radliff, New Jersey, NJ, Violin
Victoria Miskolczy, Newfield, NY, Principal Viola
Rachel Lanskey, Brooklyn, NY, Viola
J.J. Johnson, New York, NY, Viola
Nickolas Kaynor, Melrose, MA, Viola
