Robin Zeh, Violin
Acclaimed by the New York Times for her “stylish, committed playing”, and as a performer “with flair,” Robin Zeh enjoys a career as a versatile and dynamic artist that largely reflects contemporary musical life in New York City. Frequently in demand as a concerto soloist, she has appeared with the Bronx Symphony, Greenwich Village Orchestra, New York Repertory Orchestra, and South Shore Symphony. A member of the American Ballet Theatre Orchestra and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Robin is also a regular in Broadway pits, having played in the original Broadway productions of Elton John’s Aida, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, and Ghost the Musical. As chamber musician she makes a specialty of music by living composers, both in American Modern Ensemble as well as the Pit Stop Players, where she has premiered works by Steven Burke, David Chesky, Susan Kander, and Michael Starobin. A graduate of Oberlin with degrees in English and Music Performance, Ms. Zeh continued study at Mannes College, where she was one of the last students to work with renowned teacher and chamber musician Felix Galimir and was also a winner of the school’s Concerto Competition. She has been broadcast on the McGraw-Hill “Young Artists’ Showcase” on WQXR and is a three-time recipient of an Arthur Foundation grant. Robin has recorded on Naxos, Harbinger, Centaur, Buena Vista Records, and American Modern Recordings (AMR).
