GELLER TO JOIN THE SEATTLE SYMPHONY IN SEPTEMBER 2018
SEATTLE, WA – Music Director Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony announce that Noah Geller will become the David & Amy Fulton Concertmaster beginning in the 2018–2019 season.
Morlot shared, “We’re thrilled to welcome Noah as our Concertmaster and I greatly look forward to collaborating with him in Seattle. I’ve admired Noah’s musicianship for many years, and I’m so excited to see him in this role. I want to thank our audition committee for their excellent work in helping to select Noah. He will be a wonderful addition to the Seattle Symphony family.”
“I am deeply humbled and honored to have been chosen as the next concertmaster of the Seattle Symphony,” shared Geller. “I cannot wait to begin making music with all the fantastic musicians in the orchestra and Maestro Morlot. Seattle is such a vibrant town and blessed to have the world-class Benaroya Hall, a place I look forward to calling my musical home. One of the great things about being a performer is the ability to communicate widely without using words, and it will bring me great joy to experience this kind of unique communication with each person in the audience every time we play. I am eager to begin this next chapter of my life and I look forward to welcoming everyone in Seattle to our concerts!”
Geller is currently Concertmaster of the Kansas City Symphony, and prior to this held posts in The Philadelphia Orchestra as a first violin section member and later as Acting Assistant Concertmaster. He attended The Juilliard School for both his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees, and has also performed with many chamber and festival organizations around the U.S. including the Marlboro Music Festival, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Tanglewood Music Center, and here in the Pacific Northwest at the Olympic Music Festival in Port Townsend, Wash.
