A Marin Symphony Chamber Music Concert with Zuill Bailey
Saturday, October 7 at 8:00 pm
Hoytt Theater, Osher Marin JCC, San Rafael
Welcome Maddie & Kevin!
The Marin Symphony is thrilled to introduce you to the two newest members of our musical community.
At our Mahler concerts in April, we paid tribute to retiring long-time principal cellist Jan Volkert. We all look forward to continuing to see Jan in our audience and in the community. In the meantime, here’s the next part of the story:
She had barely landed on the tarmac at San Francisco International Airport when she auditioned for the open principal cello position with the Marin Symphony. The soft-spoken Madeleine Tucker had just moved from New York to join the Risk team at Stripe, the online payment juggernaut whose headquarters are located in San Francisco. Born and raised outside of Boston, MA, Maddie graduated from Phillips Academy Andover. She went on to earn degrees in Applied Mathematics from Columbia University in New York and a Master of Music in Cello Performance from The Juilliard School under the guidance of Natasha Brofsky.
And, on the heels of Stephen McKersie’s retirement as Director of the Marin Symphony Chorus, we are thrilled to welcome Kevin Fox as the Chorus’s new Director.
Kevin Fox is a GRAMMY-winning choral director who started singing in choirs at the age of eight. He holds degrees in Music with Honors and Economics from Wesleyan University, Connecticut, where he received the Lipsky Prize for outstanding scholarship in choral studies. He has studied music at Oxford University, England, and Westminster Choir College.
Mr. Fox was the Founding Artistic Director of the Pacific Boychoir Academy of California. Starting with six boys, Pacific Boychoir Academy grew to serve more than 175 boys in the San Francisco Bay Area.
