Carol Rodland - Viola
Violist Carol Rodland made her solo debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age seventeen. Praised by Fanfare for possessing a tone which is “larger than life, sweetly in tune, and infinitely variegated” and for her “delicious” playing, she presently enjoys an international career as a concert and recording artist and pedagogue. Recent performances have taken her to Brazil, Germany, and throughout the USA, and her solo recordings on the Crystal and Neuma labels have been critically acclaimed. A Fulbright Scholar, she holds degrees from the Juilliard School and the Musikhochschule Freiburg. She has held professorships at New England Conservatory, where she won the “Krasner Award for Excellence in Teaching”, at the Musikhochshule “Hanns Eisler” Berlin, at Arizona State University, and as guest faculty at the Juilliard School. In 2008 she was appointed to a tenured professorship at the Eastman School of Music.
