The adventurous William Harvey of Indianapolis has won the concertmaster audition at the National Symphony Orchestra (Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional, OSN) in Mexico City.

Juilliard trained, he has worked with young musicians in Afghanistan and served as concertmaster at two Mexican colleges.

He will serve a probationary period until next July before the position is confirmed.

    Fabulous violinist and one of the best people on earth. Congratulations William!

  • Mark Henriksen says:

    Had a bad experience with that orchestra as a foreigner. But it was quite a while back.
