“The Muncie Symphony Orchestra has added two members and promoted another into positions that have been open for a little more than a year,” writes Audrey J. Kirby in Thursday’s (1/19) Indianapolis Star. “Muncie native Noelle Tretick Gosling is the organization’s new concertmaster, a position formerly held for 13 years by Mary Kothman. Tim Tan is associate concertmaster, and Nataliya Nizhalova is assistant concertmaster.” Gosling “attended the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem and then the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, where she earned violin performance degrees. Gosling has played numerous years with the Indianapolis Symphony and is a recording studio artist who has toured with notable artists such as Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, Harry Connick Jr., Josh Groban and Andy Williams.… Tan lives in Fort Wayne, and also is personnel manager with Fort Wayne Philharmonic. Meanwhile, Nizhalova has played in MSO since 2011, moving up to the assistant concertmaster position after finishing her doctorate in violin performance at [Muncie’s] Ball State [University].” She was formerly associate concertmaster in Russia’s Nizhniy Novgorod State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater.
