The Concertmaster's Chair


The Symphony Society also gratefully acknowledges the generosity of David and Jane Grandstaff, who have provided financial support for the Orchestra's Concertmaster this season. The Concertmaster is the lead violinist, leads the orchestra in its tuning prior to the concert, and customarily plays all the violin solos within pieces. Additionally, the Concertmaster marks all of the violinists' parts with the appropriate bowings in order that the players are moving their bows in unison. The Manchester Symphony Society thanks David and Jane for underwriting this very important position.
