Acclaimed Violinist to Perform With University Symphony Orchestra

Violinist Oliver Steiner will perform the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto as guest soloist with the University Symphony Orchestra at 8 p.m. Nov. 13 in the Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall.

Following his studies at Juilliard, Steiner was awarded scholarships that led to appearances at European music festivals and to his studies with Nathan Milstein in Zurich.
The New York Times titled its review of Steiner’s Carnegie Recital Hall debut, “Steiner Violin Sparkles,” calling his performance, “a splendidly played concert in which fine-honed techniques and superior musicianship asserted themselves at every point.”  

From 1972-1992 Steiner was a member of the violin faculty at Rochester New York’s Eastman School of Music. His latest CD, consisting of the Brahms D Minor Sonata and a collection of short pieces, is available from

Admission to the concert is free and open to the public. The remainder of the program will feature the orchestra in performances of Rossini’s Overture to La Gazza Ladra and the Schubert Unfinished Symphony.
