Meet Middle America’s mobile concertmaster

July 12, 2018 by norman lebrecht


Jun-Ching Lin has been named concertmaster of the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra.

He is the first signing for new music director, Julian Kuerti.

A Boston pal of Yo-Yo Ma’s, Jun-Ching Lin has been concertmaster of Atlanta Opera and guest concertmaster with the Florida, Fort Worth, Kalamazoo, and Phoenix symphonies, before finally settling on upwardly mobile Kalamazoo.

    “…upwardly mobile [sic] Kalamazoo.”

    I heard it was going to be promoted to Grand Rapids very soon.

    You missed the fact that Jun-Ching Lin is a longtime Assistant Concertmaster of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
