Hiker picked for Utah’s hot seatmain
There has been discomfort in Salt Lake City since music director Thierry Fischer displaced Ralph Matson from the concertmaster’s seat after 30 years’ service.
Fischer has now appointed Madeline Adkins, associate concertmaster of the Baltimore Symphony, as Utah’s new #1.
Adkins, 38, is a hiking enthusiast who has fostered more than 100 kittens (that’s what it says here.)
Ralph Matson, whom she won over on the open trail, will be her associate concertmaster.
Peace in Utah.
