Inspicio interviews New World Symphony Dean Michael Linville

Inspicio Arts, our sister publication , has published a video conversation with Michael Linville, who is the current dean of chamber music and fellow development at the New World Symphony.

Linville has always been surrounded by music. Although there were no professional musicians in his family, everyone was musically inclined. He was drawn to the piano at age three, and was taught how to play by his grandmother. His love of music only deepened from there.

“I was invited to come to New World as a substitute during a tour that Michael Tilson Thomas was conducting, and on the program was Charles Ive’s 4th Symphony which calls for five different keyboard players,” said Linvolle. “I was one of the keyboard players in that piece, and I think it was that experience that made me decide that this was where I really wanted to be. I walked away from my burgeoning career as a freelance musician in Los Angeles and never looked back.”

Linville loves to work with students at the New World Symphony and prepare them to be leaders in their fields.
