Artists

Laurie Goldman

First Violin

Laurie Goldman was born to Jewish parents in Brooklyn, New York. When she was three, the family moved to Lawrence, Kansas. A year later, her mother had a chance encounter with another mother which led to Laurie beginning violin lessons with Eleanor Allen, a Suzuki violin teacher. Mrs. Allen was an excellent teacher who had several other pupils who became professional violinists as well. Laurie attended Haverford College, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Magna Cum Laude. While in the Philadelphia area, she studied with David Arben, Philadelphia Orchestra Assistant Concertmaster. She received a Master of Music at the University of Michigan, where she studied with Camilla Wicks and Jacob Krachmalnick.

Laurie joined the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in 1991. She has made numerous appearances as a soloist in the Detroit area, appearing with the orchestras of Toledo, Dearborn, Allen Park, and Grosse Pointe among others. She made her Detroit Symphony Orchestra solo debut in 1996. Also active as a chamber musician, Laurie has performed in ensembles at Interlochen, the Grand Teton Music Festival and at venues in the Detroit area. She has appeared in several recitals to benefit the DSO Volunteer Council.

Laurie is grateful for the help of her parents and, especially, her grandparents. Although they grew up with very little indeed, they made great sacrifices to allow their children, and by extension, their grandchildren to be successful in music and otherwise.
