The Minnesota Orchestra has today announced the appointment of American violinist Felicity James as its new Associate Concertmaster – effective from December of this year.
A graduate of the Coburn School, where she studied with Robert Lipsett, Felicity has previously served as Concertmaster of the Verbier Festival Orchestra, the Colburn School Orchestra and the Aspen Philharmonic – and has performed as a member of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and the Seattle Symphony.

“We are very excited for Felicity to begin her new role as Associate Concertmaster … and we are confident that she will be a huge asset to the first violin section and the Orchestra as a whole …” Minnesota Orchestra Concertmaster Erin Keefe has said.
“She is a beautiful violinist and musician who impressed the audition committee with her incredible poise as a leader,” she has said.
Felicity will replace violinist Roger Frisch – who will retire from the ensemble after 35 years of service.
