We are privileged to honor the memory of Beth Anne Newdome by naming our young artist's program after her. Beth was a beloved and frequent performer at the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival and played a crucial role in helping to get the Festival started. She was a consummate artist who "learned the integral difference of playing music and playing an instrument. In her hands, her violin gave voice to joy and sorrow, tears and laughter, interpreting emotion in a way words fail. Her upbeat personality made her a friend to many and coupled with her talent on the violin, made her a much sought after soloist." Beth fought cancer for over five years and died in February 2010. Prior to becoming Associate Professor of Violin at Florida State University in 2002, Beth's career included positions as Associate Concertmaster of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, principal violinist of the Georgian Chamber Players and violinist of the Inman Trio. In addition to being a regular performer at the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival, she served on the violin artist faculty of the Aspen Music Festival and was a frequent performer at Carnegie Hall.
