Kay Stern :

"My 2002 Anthony Lane violin is a truly beautiful instrument. It's extremely responsive, with a naturally clear voice that projects effortlessly. I know I can depend on it, whether playing Strauss solos, chamber music, or leading the entire opera orchestra – it's a joy to play."

Currently Concertmaster of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra, Kay Stern received her bachelor's, master's and doctorate from the Juilliard School of Music. A featured artist on television and radio, Ms. Stern has appeared on PBS's "Live from Lincoln Center," CNN's "Women Today," "A Prairie Home Companion," "St. Paul Sunday Morning," and Robert Sherman's "Listening Room."
