Noah Bendix-Balgley joins Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as concertmaster

Monday, 18 July 2011

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has appointed American violinist Noah Bendix-Balgley as its new concertmaster. The 27-year-old joins the orchestra on a three-year contract and will make his debut in his position on 17 September. He replaces Andres Cardenes, who left the orchestra last year after 21 years as concertmaster.

Bendix-Balgley was born in Asheville, North Carolina, and studied with Mauricio Fuks at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and with Christoph Poppen in Munich. He was a prize winner at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 2009, and in May of this year won first prize at the Vibrarte International Music Competition in Paris.
