“Adriane is a wonderful musician and a brilliant violinist, and I’m looking forward very much to our collaboration,” said IBO Artistic Director Barthold Kuijken. “At the same time, I want to express all my gratitude to our now-retired concertmaster Allison Nyquist, and to Martie Perry (Acting Concertmaster), Jeremy Rhizor, and Guillermo Salas Suárez who did a great job leading IBO projects during the interim.”
