BREAKING NEWS | New York Philharmonic Announces New Concertmaster

The New York Philharmonic has just minutes ago announced Chinese-born American violinist, Frank Huang as their new Concertmaster.

A graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Juilliard School, Frank is a former prize winner at the Walter W Naumburg, Paganini, Hannover and Indianapolis International Violin Competitions.

The Philharmonic has been conducting an ongoing 2 year search for a new leader, to succeed Glenn Dicterow, who retired at the end of last season – after 34 years in the Principal Chair.

Frank, 36, who has served as Concertmaster of the Houston Symphony Orchestra since 2010, will commence his appointment at the beginning of the 2015/16 season.

Music Director, Alan Gilbert has said in a statement that he and the musicians on the search committee came to a unanimous decision on Mr Huang - who has “just the right mix of virtuosity, flair, musicality, and collegiality.”
