A dual citizen from Toronto, Canada, Roslyn Green now finds herself in Chicago as the Viola Fellow with the Civic Orchestra of Chicago.
Having trained on violin from a young age, in particular with the late Jacques Israelievitch, Roslyn completed a BAH in English and Drama at Queen’s University while working as a contract violinist with the Kingston Symphony. Upon graduation, she returned to Toronto and studied violin privately with iconic Canadian violin pedagogue David Zafer. She began viola studies with Yosef Tamir in 2013, and subsequently won a spot at the Glenn Gould School of the Royal Conservatory the following year. Roslyn completed her Artist Diploma on the Dean’s List in 2016 under the tutelage of renowned violist Steven Dann. She has played in masterclasses for artists including Kim Kashkashian, Ettore Causa, Geoff Nuttall, Kikuei Ikeda, and the Juilliard Quartet.
As well as playing with the Civic Orchestra since 2016, Roslyn has appeared in the viola sections of the Windsor Symphony, the Hamilton Philharmonic and for three seasons with the National Academy Orchestra of Canada. She has recorded extensively as a session player and with her former rock band, The C’mons. She is the director of the brand new branch of the Chicago Metamorphosis Orchestra Project at Hamilton Elementary School and teaches violin and piano privately.
Roslyn Green’s Civic Fellowship is sponsored by The Julian Family Foundation.
