Lynne Edelson Levine, a native Long Islander, was accepted into the National Symphony Orchestra by Mstislav Rostropovich during her senior year at the Curtis Institute of Music.
During her four years at Curtis, she performed with the New York String Orchestra, The Concerto Soloists of Philadelphia, and the Aspen Festival and Chamber Orchestras (including private studies with Lillian Fuchs and Martha Strongin Katz). She was also awarded the Fromm Fellowship to study and perform at Tanglewood.
As a student of Joseph de Pasquale, she graduated from Curtis with a Bachelor of Music degree in the spring of 1978 and began her first season with the NSO four months later.
In 1981, she and three NSO colleagues formed the Manchester String Quartet. Her nine years with the quartet included coaching sessions with Rostropovich ("Slava") and the Guarneri Quartet, as well as performances in Detroit, New York, and Washington, D.C. They also competed in international quartet competitions in Munich, Germany and Banff, Canada.
Locally, she has performed with the American Camerata, American Chamber Players, Theatre Chamber Players, and the 20th Century Consort.
Accompanied by pianist Myriam Avalos Teie, she gave a viola recital at the National Gallery of Art. As a soloist, she has appeared with the American Youth Philharmonic, National Symphony (at Wolf Trap), and New York Virtuosi Chamber Symphony.
