About Linda Rosenthal, violinist
Violinist Linda Rosenthal has performed worldwide and tours extensively throughout the US, frequently under the auspices of the Piatigorsky Foundation. Based in Juneau, Alaska, Linda served as Professor of Music at the University of Alaska Southeast for 20 years. She loves performing in all the far-flung corners of her state, from fishing towns to villages above the Arctic Circle. Following a solo performance with the National Symphony, Linda was commissioned by the Kennedy Center to create “Strings & Stories”, a show for young audiences. She and Los Angeles actor Bill Blush have gone on to perform “Strings & Stories” annually for thousands of children. Linda founded the Juneau Jazz & Classics Festival and served as its Artistic Director for 30 years. She is on the faculty of Summertrios and is Founder and Music Director of the Lake Placid Chamber Music Seminar.
Fun fact: When touring in Alaska’s Arctic, there were times when Linda got to travel to her performances by dogsled.
