Noah Geller is the Kansas City Symphony’s concertmaster, also known as the principal solo violinist. He has won numerous awards for his performances all over the world. Noah earned his bachelor and graduate degree at Juilliard. During his time there, he also co-founded the Group Shirami, which is Hebrew for “Song Of Our People.” The group is still active, playing Jewish music that is often obscure and composed during the Holocaust era. On this Ghost Notes interview, Noah addresses the exclusivity of the classical music world, and how it has evolved throughout the centuries. The music you hear underneath the interview is our recording from Noah’s solo performance at our studio.
