Violinist Inés Voglar
Inés Voglar joined the Oregon Symphony Orchestra in August 2004 and is active as a teacher, coach, chamber musician, and soloist. Following a scholarship to come to the United States, Ms. Voglar earned a Bachelor of Music degree with Honors from Duquesne University, and a Master of Music degree from Carnegie Mellon University, where she studied with violinist Andrés Cárdenes. In 2002, Ms. Voglar was selected as one of the concertmasters for the UBS Verbier Festival Youth Orchestra, touring and working under the batons of James Levine, M. Rostropovich, Paavo Jarvi, Bobby McFerrin and Kurt Masur.
Prior to her arrival in Portland, Ms. Voglar performed with the Pittsburgh Symphony for two seasons, with whom she also appeared as a soloist. Her interest in contemporary music led her to become a member of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble for a few years. During that time, she had the opportunity to premier various works, including a violin solo piece, “Chameleon,” written for her by American Composer David Stock in 2001. Ms. Voglar is a member of FearNoMusic and the Free Marz String Trio.
