American violinist Randall Goosby doesn’t remember a time when he wasn’t connected to classical music. His orchestral solo debut was with the Jacksonville Symphony at age nine and then, at thirteen, he performed with the New York Philharmonic on a Young People’s Concert at Avery Fisher Hall. He has since crisscrossed the nation, appearing with The Cleveland Orchestra, the Buffalo, Rochester, and Orlando philharmonics, and the Nashville, Memphis, Hartford, Grand Rapids, Modesto, Arkansas, South Bend, and New World Symphony orchestras.
A First Prize Winner in the 2018 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Mr. Goosby made his New York City and Washington, D.C., recital debuts on the Young Concert Artists Series. This season, he appears on the YCA Encore Series at the Morgan Library & Museum with pianist Zhu Wang.
In 2019, Mr. Goosby was named the inaugural Robey Artist by Young Classical Artists Trust, in partnership with Music Masters in London. He is also the recipient of Sphinx’s Isaac Stern Award, through which he made two appearances at Carnegie Hall. Additional honors include recognition from NPR’s From The Top, Bagby Foundation, and the Stradivari Society, which named him a Rising Star.
Mr. Goosby is currently pursuing an Artist Diploma with Itzhak Perlman and Catherine Cho at The Juilliard School, where he also earned both undergraduate and graduate degrees, as a Kovner Fellowship recipient and studied with Mr. Perlman, Ms. Cho, Laurie Smukler, and Donald Weilerstein. Mr. Goosby is an exclusive recording artist for Decca Classics. He plays a Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesu of 1735, on generous loan by the Stradivari Society.
