Alumna Awarded First Violin Position

Wei WeiWei Wei (A.D., 2012, 2010) has recently been awarded a first violin position with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, winning over many other violinists from other prestigious colleges, universities, and conservatories.

While at Duquesne, she studied primarily with Rachel Stegeman, with occasional lessons from Charles Stegeman. Charles noted, "She had several brutally long lessons each week with Rachel in preparation for this audition. Obviously, it paid off, and she is going to go on to have a wonderful career in symphonic performance. Mary Pappert School of Music students work tirelessly to develop their skills, and by the time they leave Duquesne, they have the requisite talents to be competitive with graduates from any of the top conservatories in the world. Wei Wei has proven that once again."

Wei Wei will begin her new position this September.
