Texas grabs principal viola from Oregon

The Ukrainian-born violist Anna Kolotylina has been lured from the Oregon Symphony to the #1 seat in the Fort Worth Symph.

What’s Texas got that Oregon lacks?

UPDATE: Oregon Symphony tells us that Anna played a partial season with the orchestra in 2014-15 on a temporary basis.

  • Texas is full of energy and aspiration. There is no state income tax, and it snows where I live (in Austin) one inch every three years. Every school has at least a good wind and brass program, for Friday night football is an engrained pageant, requiring a band; as long as there is a band program, there may as well be a choral program. Strong string programs exist in all six of the largest cities. And we are gradually turning Texas blue. There is no need for a wall!

  • This is simply not accurate. Anna was a resident of louisiana and had a limited term job with oregon a few years ago before moving to LOuisiana. She had jobs in local orchestras in lafayette and did gigs around the area. Please check the facts before posting as it is misleading. I wish her the best in her new job.
