The National Philharmonic, in North Bethesda, Maryland, has this week announced the appointment of American violinist Laura Colgate as its new Concertmaster.

A graduate of the New England Conservatory and the University of Maryland's School of Music, Laura currently serves as Concertmaster of the Greenville Symphony Orchestra and is the co-founder of the Boulanger Initiative - an advocacy organization for women composers based in Washington D.C.

“I am very impressed by Laura’s musicianship and leadership skills ... Laura quickly emerged from among several dozen candidates for the position, and her terrific performance at a concert last February sealed the deal,” National Philharmonic Music Director Piotr Gajewski has this week said.

“I am honored to be joining such a progressive and forward-thinking organization ... the National Philharmonic has given me the opportunity to establish my own voice and vision and to help define and be a part of shaping the organization’s identity moving forward ..." Laura has this week said.

"For an orchestra to give that sort of freedom to a Concertmaster is really remarkable,” she has said.
