SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) Do you know what a concertmaster is? Tuesday we had the chance to meet the next one for the Utah Symphony.
Madeline Adkins won’t actually be the concertmaster until September 2016, but she will be performing with the Utah Symphony until then including a concert this weekend.
Adkins describes the job of the concertmaster.
“You’re really a liaison between the conductor and the orchestra… So you help implement his vision. And you kind of translate it into practical terms so you’re all rowing in the same direction,” said Adkins.
Adkins is taking over for Ralph Watson who has served as the concertmaster since 1985.
