Concertmaster

First season with the SO: 1998


Daniel Jordan is the concertmaster of the Sarasota Orchestra and the Assistant Principal 2nd violinist of the Santa Fe Opera orchestra.  He was formerly the Assistant Principal 1st violinist of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in Kuala Lumpur, and a member of the New World Symphony in Miami Beach.

He has played as concertmaster of the Waterbury (Connecticut) Symphony, Spoleto (Charleston) Festival, and Erie Philharmonic, and served in the sections of the St. Louis Symphony, Naples Philharmonic, and Florida Orchestra. Previous to his tenure in Santa Fe, summers have been spent as a member of the Sun Valley (Idaho) Summer Symphony, Assistant Concertmaster of the Colorado Music Festival, and Concertmaster of the National Repertory Orchestra.  He has also twice returned to lead the New World Symphony as concertmaster in alumni concerts.  Recent summer credits include performances with the Sarasota Music Festival and Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.

Daniel received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music as a student of Donald Weilerstein and David Updegraff.  Prior to that he was a student at the Harid Conservatory and Interlochen Arts Academy.

The violin he plays on is the ex Humphreys 1695 Peter Guarneri of Mantua and the bow he uses is a Dominique Peccatte, both generously on loan to the Sarasota Orchestra from the Steinwachs Family Foundation. He is married to another violinist in the Sarasota Orchestra, Chung-Yon Hong, and is the proud father of a three year old son, Spencer.

 There's no doubt, audiences are thrilled by the Sarasota Orchestra's new music director, Anu Tali. She's brought an intense energy from the orchestra in previous performances and we found this yet again in a downright thrill ride of an encounter...  

Written byHerald Tribune

 Literally gripping the arms of my seat, I was not the only one propelled on this rollercoaster of delightful music.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 Every section and soloist within the orchestra played their role with strength and beauty; every tree proud and tall. Tali served as an excellent guide leading the forces with assured confidence. The overall sound was lush and, yes, intense just where it needed to be.

 The Sarasota Orchestra was brimming with bubbling energy...  

Written byHerald Tribune

 A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 Tali conveyed a clear vision for the dramatic outline of this symphony, carefully pacing the darker, searching character of the music with pastoral conversations among voices in the orchestra.  

Written byThe Observer

 If you haven’t seen Tali yet, this will be a great introduction to the skyrocketing conductor who’s quickly becoming a household name around the world. You’ll see why we feel we’re lucky to have her here.
