Congratulations to alumnus Frank Huang (BM, '02) who has been appointed concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic. Huang completed his BM from CIM in 2002 and graduated from the CIM Young Artists Program in 1997. He was a student of Donald Weilerstein.

Huang,  who began his studies at CIM at age 16, told The New York Times, “I’m lucky to have had fantastic teachers who helped me not only improve on the instrument but helped me develop this love of what music can do, how it can change your life.”

Huang currently serves as concertmaster of the Houston Symphony and will replace Glenn Dicterow, who served in the highly coveted position for 34 years. As soon as Dicterow announced he would be stepping down, the search began. Huang will begin his new position in September.
