Noah Bendix-Balgley officially leaving PSO

Written by Elizabeth Bloom on .

Noah Bendix-Balgley, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's terrific concertmaster since 2011, has officially put in his notice that he'll be leaving the PSO for the Berlin Philharmonic.

The violinist won Berlin's first concertmaster job in February 2014, but divided his time last season between the Pittsburgh and Germany posts. The PSO expects to form a committee and begin the process of finding his replacement this fall, according to Louise Sciannameo, vice president of public affairs. In any case, he will perform a few times in Heinz Hall this season. He's also featured in a Chamber Music Pittsburgh concert with pianist Orion Weiss in November
