Marjorie Bagley, Violin
Violinist Marjorie Bagley made her Lincoln Center concerto debut in 1997 with the Little Orchestra Society after beginning her performing career at the age of nine in her home state of North Carolina with the Asheville, Winston-Salem, and North Carolina Symphonies. As first violinist and founding member of the Arcata String Quartet*, Marjorie performed in the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie, London’s Wigmore Hall, and across Western Europe and the United States. Ms. Bagley can be heard in recordings for the VOX, New World and Summit labels, and in a recording of music for violin and percussion on the Equilibrium label featuring a concerto by Lou Harrison.
Currently Professor of Violin at the University of North Carolina Greensboro and on faculty at the Brevard Music Center, Ms. Bagley has also taught at the International Music Academy in Pilsen, the Perlman Music Program, the Kinhaven Music School, and the Manhattan School of Music Preparatory Program. She has been performing with the Berkshire Bach Society since 1994.
Currently, Marjorie is Principal Second Violin in the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra in Ohio, and recently accepted an appointment as Concertmaster of the Greensboro Symphony. She lives in Greensboro with her husband Ian Beatty, a physics professor at UNCG, and their three children: Eleanor, and twins Lee and Josephine.
In 2014, Marjorie Bagley appeared as soloist with the Hickory High School String Orchestra in Mark O’Connor’s “Strings and Threads”. We are pleased to welcome her back to Hickory.
*In 2002, the Fry Street Quartet was named to succeed the Arcata String Quartet as the resident string quartet at Utah State University.
