New concertmaster for symphony

Zachary DePue, a 27-year-old member of the Philadelphia Orchestra, will be the next concertmaster of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

ISO officials told symphony musicians this morning that the 15-month search for a new first-chair first violinist had ended.

He will succeed Hidetaro Suzuki, who retired from the ISO in September 2005 after 27 years as concertmaster.

A native of Bowling Green, Ohio, DePue is a 2002 graduate of the Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music. That year, he joined the Philadelphia Orchestra’s first violin section.
