Nikki Chooi, the Canadian violinist who shared concertmaster duties at the Met in 2016-17, has been named concertmaster at the Buffalo Philharmonic.
The post had been vacant for almost a year, since Dennis Kim departed.
“Nikki Chooi is an absolutely spectacular violinist and a consummate leader,” said BPO music director JoAnn Falletta. “The musicians and I are thrilled that he will be bringing his world-class talents to the Philharmonic.”
