When the young American violinist Randall Goosby performed with the New York Philharmonic on a Young People’s Concert at Avery Fisher Hall at the age of thirteen, The New York Times raved that he “exerted a masterly level of control and lavished an exquisite tone…his performance won him a deserved standing ovation for its sheer virtuosity.”

At thirteen, Mr. Goosby was the youngest recipient ever to win the Sphinx Concerto Competition; he  recently received first prize in the 2018 Young Concert Artists International Auditions.  He has also participated in The Perlman Music Program’s Chamber Music Workshop, been featured on National Public Radio’s “From the Top,” and been honored as Rising Star of the Stradivari Society.  He received his bachelor’s degree from Juilliard, studying with Itzhak Perlman, and is currently pursuing his master’s degree at Juilliard.

Upcoming appearances include the Bach Double Concerto with Itzhak Perlman and the Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra, and he has previously performed as soloist with The Cleveland Orchestra, the Buffalo, Rochester and Orlando Philharmonics, and the symphonies of Nashville, Memphis, Grand Rapids, Albany, South Bend and New World.
