USC Thornton alum Kathryn Eberle (BM ’04) has been appointed concertmaster of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Eberle was selected after the orchestra’s summer auditions to fill the position of the late Katia Popov. Along with being a seasoned soloist and chamber musician, Eberle is the associate concertmaster for the Utah Symphony, a position she will continue to hold.
“I’m so looking forward to being back in Los Angeles each summer and working with principal conductor Thomas Wilkins, my fantastic new colleagues in the orchestra and all the amazing guest artists that perform at this iconic venue,” Eberle told The Strad.
Eberle has performed as a soloist with many orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and has served as guest concertmaster for the Kansas City, Richard and Omaha Symphonies. The acclaimed violinist studied with Robert Lipsett at USC Thornton where she received the Strings Department and Symphony awards.
