TWO NEW MUSICIANS
Hanna Landrum and Sophia Mockler join the Minnesota Orchestra’s violin section
The Minnesota Orchestra announced today that it has hired two new musicians following extensive auditions. Violinists Hanna Landrum and Sophia Mockler will both fill vacant positions in the second violin section of the Orchestra. Landrum, who is originally from Frontenac, Minnesota, begins her new role on June 10 in the Season Finale concerts. Mockler—a native of Brooklyn, New York—will start in September at the beginning of the Orchestra’s 2019-20 season.
Hanna Landrum previously held the position of principal second violin with the Rochester Philharmonic and has performed with numerous orchestras and at music festivals across the country. She has held leadership positions with the Canton Symphony Orchestra, Youngstown Symphony and Firelands Symphony, and is a regular substitute with the Cleveland Orchestra. With a passion for contemporary music, she has participated in the premieres of many new American works, including collaborations with both visual arts and dance. Born and raised in Frontenac, Minnesota, she studied under Minnesota Orchestra violinist Aaron Janse before attending the Cleveland Institute of Music, where she earned both her bachelor of music and professional studies degrees mentored by David Updegraff and William Preucil. She has received numerous honors including the Dr. Jerome Gross prize and the Darius Milhaud award.
