New Zealand-born violinist Amalia Hall has been named concertmaster of Orchestra Wellington and will join the ensemble from its first subscription concert in May next year.
'I am over the moon that Orchestra Wellington has been able to attract Amalia Hall as our next concertmaster,' said music director Marc Taddei. 'This is brilliant news for Wellington and New Zealand, and I guarantee that great things will come out of this appointment.'
The 27-year-old artist won the Tunbridge Wells International Young Concert Artists Competition in May 2016 was the sixth placed finalist at the 2015 Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition Hannover. She is a graduate of the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia where she studied with Pamela Frank and Josph Silverstein.
