FSO Appoints New Principal Viola

FSO Appoints New Principal Viola

24 January 2017

The FSO is very excited to announce that Elizabeth Winters has been appointed our new Principal Viola following her concert audition last week.  Elizabeth studied viola, piano and recorder at the Royal College of Music Junior Department and subsequently continued her viola studies on the undergraduate course, but is perhaps better known as a composer after a hand injury led her to focus on this.

Elizabeth has won several competitions for her compositions but has recently returned to viola playing and we are delighted to have her at the helm of our viola section as a result.  Read more about Elizabeth on our members page, and keep an eye out in case a Winters composition makes it into a programme soon!
