Laura Mericle

First year with the DSO: 2009
Hometown: Madison, WI
Education: BA from Barnard College, MM in Violin Performance from the University of Wisconsin
My earliest musical memory: Going to see the New York Phil at Lincoln Center with my mom.
I knew I would make a career in music when: I heard an older student play the last movement of the Franck Sonata and I knew that I had to play it some day.
Most memorable performance with the DSO: Playing with Gil Shaham
Favorite recording: There are many, but to name a few: Beaux Arts Trio recordings of the Brahms Piano Trios, The Takas Quartet’s Beethoven String Quartet Cycle, Mitsuko Uchida’s Schubert Impromptus.
Advice for young musicians: Seize every opportunity you have to go to concerts and watch people perform. You can learn a lot about your own playing by hearing and watching others.
A special story about my instrument: It’s over 300 years old and used to live in Hawaii.
Other instruments I play: Piano and viola
