About the Performers
Virginia Sindelar made her debut at the age of twelve with the Chicago Symphony String Ensemble while a pupil of Caroline Solfronk Vacha, the Grand Dame of the Chicago Lyric Opera and Chicago Ballet. As a student of Julius Baker at the Juilliard School, Ms. Sindelar earned both B.A. and M.S. degrees and was presented the Three Arts Club Award in recognition of her outstanding performance. Her compact disc recordings on the Centaur label have received praise in Fanfare Magazine - "brilliant in effect"; Audio Magazine - "a real delight"; and Ovation Magazine. She has toured Alaska, North and South America and Korea presenting concerts and master classes. She has performed and taught in Tanglewood, Lenox, Massachusetts, the Bowdoin Summer Music Festival in Brunswick, Maine, the Rockport Summer Chamber Music Festival and others. Ms. Sindelar is host and producer of two nationally distributed programs originating at Continental Cablevision of Cambridge, Massachusetts - "Meet the Artists," an interview show designed to make performing artists and composers more accessible to a broad viewing audience and "In Performance," a recital hour that presents an intimate and varied look at the performing arts. She is founder and Artistic Director of the Scarborough Chamber Players, an ensemble that has commissioned numerous new works, presented a variety of multi-cultural and multi- discipline programs and is a three-time recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Mother of two sons, Ms. Sindelar has made Boston her home since 1966. Her hobbies include law, American history, sailing and skiing.
