Guest Artist

Glenn Dicterow

Violinist Glenn Dicterow has established himself worldwide as one of the most prominent American concert artists of his generation.

His extraordinary musical gifts became apparent at the age of 11 when he made his solo debut in Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto with the Los Angeles Philharmonic where his father, Harold Dicterow served as principal of the second violin section for 52 years.

In the following years Mr. Dicterow became one of the most sought after young artists appearing as soloist from coast to coast.

He went on to win numerous awards and competitions including the Young Musicians Foundation Award and Coleman Award (Los Angeles), the Julia Klumpke Award (San Francisco) and the Bronze Medal in the International Tchaikovsky Competition (1970). He is a graduate of Juilliard, where he was a student of Ivan Galamian. Other teachers have included Joachim Chassman, Naoum Blinder, Manuel Compinsky, Erno Neufeld, Gerald Vinci, Jascha Heifetz and Henryk Szeryng.
