Noah Bendix-Balgley with David Allen Wehr
We are excited to present the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s new concertmaster, Noah Bendix-Balgley, in a violin recital. Mr. Bendix-Balgley won 1st prize at the Vibrarte International Music Competition and the International Violin Competition “Andrea Postacchini.” He will be accompanied by pianist David Allen Wehr , who currently holds the Jack W. Geltz Distinguished Piano Chair at Duquesne University and who has collected numerous prestigious awards throughout his performing career.
