Artistic: Omaha Symphony

Posted on: August 23, 2011

Nebraska’s Omaha Symphony has announced the appointment of SUSANNA PERRY GILMORE as concertmaster. Since 1997 she has served as concertmaster of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra in Tennessee, and during the 2011-12 season she will continue to hold that post concurrently with her service in Omaha; the Memphis Symphony has announced that it will hold auditions to identify her successor. Gilmore has played a key role in the development of Opus One, the MSO’s musician-run conductorless concert series, and Leading from Every Chair, its workshop and rehearsal-demonstration project for corporate executives and other non-musicians. She has been a regular concerto soloist with the MSO, and has been active as a teacher (currently at the University of Memphis and at Michigan’s Interlochen Summer Arts Camp), chamber musician, and recording artist. She received a bachelor’s degree from Oxford University under the tutelage of violinist Yfrah Neaman, and holds a master’s from New England Conservatory, where she studied with James Buswell. Gilmore was also a fellow at Tanglewood Music Center, the Norfolk Music Festival, and the Sarasota Chamber Music Festival.
