Helping The Violins Sing: Philadelphia Orchestra Associate Concertmaster Juliette Kang
The strings are the largest section of a symphony orchestra, and communicating among them to create a unified sound involves the conductor, the concertmaster, and another pivotal player. WRTI’s Susan Lewis talks with The Philadelphia Orchestra’s Juliette Kang about her position as associate concertmaster, and the lure of her instrument.
On WRTI's broadcast of The Philadelphia Orchestra this Sunday, May 12th at 2 pm, Juliette Kang will lead the strings in a program featuring Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence, for string orchestra, and Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5.
