Noah Luft-Weissberg found his great grandfather's violin in a closet when he was two years old, and it hasn't left his hands since. A native of Niskayuna, NY, he started lessons in the Suzuki method with the late Ann Posner and learned advanced studies with Paula Shaw in Schenectady.
Noah participated in the Empire State Youth Orchestra, the NYSSMA All State Festival Orchestra, and the New York State School of Orchestral Studies, all of which he served as concertmaster. He went to Temple University in Philadelphia where he studied with the former concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra, the late William Depasquale, earning BM and MM degrees in Violin Performance. He then was a member of the Adagio Strings Quartet aboard the HMS Westerdam, played with the National Repertory Orchestra in Breckenridge Colorado as principal second violin and soloist, and performed with many regional Orchestras in New York State.
Noah has enjoyed a performance career all over the world, playing in Alaska, California, Colorado, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and notably at the Spoleto Festival in Italy. He recently trained to teach the Suzuki Method at the School For Strings in Manhattan, NY, an intensive two year program. Noah has maintained a private teaching studio for eight years, as well as teaching for Lucy Moses School, Third Street Music School, and the community outreach programs Harmony Program and Noel Pointer Foundation in New York City. In addition to playing and teaching violin, Noah plays board games, reads books, and bakes a mean pie.
