Is this America’s youngest concertmaster?main
The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra today appointed William Shaub as its new concertmaster.
William is 24.
Does any big-city US orchestra have a younger leader?
Born in 1992 in Canton, Ohio, William Shaub was a recipient of the Louis Persinger Scholarship as a student at the Juilliard School. He was a student of Cho-Liang Lin, Emilio Llinas, Stephen Clapp, and studied chamber music with Sylvia Rosenberg. He plays a Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin, made in 1865.
