Born to a music-loving family, native Philadelphian Lorraine Glass-Harris began her violin studies at age six and continued her musical education at Indiana University with the famed pedagogue, Josef Gingold. She joined the St. Louis Symphony in 1972. In St. Louis she has been featured as soloist with the STL Symphony, on KFUO radio in “From the Garden-Live!,” in “Chamber Music St. Louis,” and as soloist with the Compton Heights Concert Band. She shares a special interest in Baroque music with her husband James Harris, who plays historical wooden flutes. Her violin is a beautiful example of the work of the Italian maker, Joseph Gagliano, made in 1779. Her snakewood bow is a historical copy of a 1750 English bow used at the time of Bach and Telemann.
