Music Director Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony announce Noah Geller as the David & Amy Fulton Concertmaster.

We are delighted to introduce the Seattle Symphony’s new Concertmaster, Noah Geller! Noah will join Music Director Ludovic Morlot and the orchestra as the David & Amy Fulton Concertmaster beginning at the start of the 2018–2019 season.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Noah as our Concertmaster and I greatly look forward to collaborating with him in Seattle,” shared Morlot. “I’ve admired Noah’s musicianship for many years, and I’m so excited to see him in this role. I want to thank our audition committee for their excellent work in helping to select Noah. He will be a wonderful addition to the Seattle Symphony family.”

Noah comes to the Seattle Symphony from the Kansas City Symphony where he is currently Concertmaster. He previously held posts in The Philadelphia Orchestra as a first violin section member and later as Acting Assistant Concertmaster.

"I am deeply humbled and honored to have been chosen as the next Concertmaster of the Seattle Symphony,” shared Noah. “I cannot wait to begin making music with all the fantastic musicians in the orchestra and Maestro Morlot. Seattle is such a vibrant town and blessed to have the world-class Benaroya Hall, a place I look forward to calling my musical home.” 

Noah attended The Juilliard School for both his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees and has also performed with many chamber and festival organizations around the country, including the Marlboro Music Festival, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Tanglewood Music Center, and here in Washington at the Olympic Music Festival in Port Townsend.

“One of the great things about being a performer is the ability to communicate widely without using words, and it will bring me great joy to experience this kind of unique communication with each person in the audience every time we play,” he shared. “I am eager to begin this next chapter of my life and look forward to welcoming everyone in Seattle to our concerts!"

Noah’s first concerts with the orchestra will be in September 2018. Please help us welcome him to the Seattle Symphony family!

Thank You!
