The Orchestra of Wellington, in New Zealand has today announced the appointment of 27 year old New Zealand violinist Amalia Hall as their new Concertmaster.
A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, where she studied with Pamela Frank and Joseph Silverstein, Amalia is a former major prize winner at the Hannover, Lipizer, Dinu Lipatti, Postacchini and Janacek International Violin Competitions.
“I am over the moon that Orchestra Wellington has been able to attract Amalia Hall as our next concertmaster …” Orchestra Wellington Music Director Marc Taddei has said.
“This is brilliant news for Wellington and New Zealand, and I guarantee that great things will come out of this appointment,” he has said.
Amalia, a Semi-Finalist in last month’s Wieniawski International Violin Competition, will join the ensemble from its first subscription concert in May 2017.
