Starlight Symphony is extremely pleased to welcome Marian Brackney to the role of concertmaster for the 2019-2020 concert season. A concertmaster is the first chair violinist in an orchestra. More importantly, a concertmaster is a leader and a teacher to the rest of the orchestra. They are also responsible for tuning the orchestra prior to a concert as well as the solo violin pieces.
When the board members of the Starlight Symphony Orchestra were tasked with selecting a new concertmaster, it was important to pick a musician who was passionate about the mission of the orchestra. We are extremely pleased to welcome Marian Brackney to the role of concertmaster for the 2019-2020 concert season.
Marian is a full-time working violinist, studio musician and private violin/viola teacher. She began her musical training at the age of seven when she studied under the world renowned Violeta Smailovic-Huart and under Dr. Alan Asher at Texas Woman’s University.
