Cleveland Orchestra appoints Alexandra Preucil as assistant concertmaster

Tuesday, 07 May 2013

The Cleveland Orchestra has promoted first violinist Alexandra Preucil (pictured) to the position of assistant concertmaster. Preucil, who has been a member of the orchestra since 2008, is the granddaughter of János Starker, who died last month. Her father is William Preucil, the concertmaster of the Cleveland Orchestra.

The orchestra has three other violinists in concertmaster positions: assistant concertmaster Yoko Moore, first associate concertmaster Peter Otto and associate concertmaster Jun-Min Amy Lee.

When she was studying at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Alexandra Preucil was assistant concertmaster of the Akron Symphony Orchestra and the Canton Symphony Orchestra. She spent two years in the Cleveland Institute of Music's Young Artist Programme, during which time she was concertmaster of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra.
