Featured Musician

Randolyn Emerson – Violin

Randolyn Emerson, violin, is happy to be playing her sixth season with the Fayetteville Symphony.  Born into a rich and varied musical environment (her mother was a member of the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir), two-year old Randolyn’s first performance for an audience ended in tears because she was told she couldn’t stay on the piano lid to sing a third encore.  After she discovered her mother’s old instrument in a closet, eight-year-old Randolyn’s love of the violin blossomed.  She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music degree, having studied violin with Oscar Chausow, longtime Utah Symphony concertmaster, and voice with Betty Jean Chipman.  Her university experience included a six-week European tour where she soloed both as a violinist and a vocalist with the university’s A Cappella Choir in historical venues such as Paris’s Notre Dame cathedral, the organ loft (above the grave of composer Anton Bruckner) of St. Florian cathedral in Linz, Austria, and Venice, Italy’s polyphonic St. Mark’s Basilica.

Relocating to North Carolina, Randolyn became active in many area orchestras, including the Tar River Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, Greensboro Symphony, North Carolina Theatre orchestra (23 years and counting) and the Raleigh and Durham Symphonies, wherein she served as each orchestra’s assistant concertmaster (and where she met her viola-playing husband).  For ten years, Randolyn was also privileged to be an extra violinist with the North Carolina Symphony.  Operas, ballets, choruses, traveling Broadway shows, and even concerts with modern artists such as Clay Aiken, Rod Stewart, and Bobby McFerrin – over the years, Randolyn’s played for them all.

Aside from music, Randolyn’s Master of Business Administration degree from Meredith College in Raleigh is being put to good use as she has recently established herself as a professional genealogist.  Most important to her, however, is her faith and her family:  sons Erik and Daniel and her amazingly supportive husband, Paul.
