Norman Carol

The legendary concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra since 1966, Norman Carol studied with Efrem Zimbalist at the Curtis Institute. At 17 he was invited by Serge Koussevitzky to join the first violins of the Boston Symphony; he made his New York debut in recital at Town Hall in 1949. He was concertmaster of the Minneapolis Symphony from 1960 before coming to Philadelphia in the same post. He has made many solo appearances with the Orchestra since 1954, and he introduced several works to Philadelphia audiences, including Bernstein's Serenade and Conus's and Hindemith's violin concertos. In 1985 he gave the world premier of the Skrowaczewski Violin Concerto. In 1986 he received an honorary doctorate of music from Gettysburg College.
