Bruce Williams began his professional career at age sixteen and three years later won a position with the Fort Worth Symphony. Four years later, he traveled to Israel to become principal violist in the Haifa Symphony and a member of the Haifa Clarinet Trio, performing all over Israel and Europe. Upon returning to the United States, he became a member of The Orchestra of Santa Fe as assistant principal. During that time, he was in great demand as a free-lance player as well, traveling all over Texas performing with various musical organizations. Currently Bruce is the principal violist in the Victoria Bach Festival and the Austin Symphony. In 2003, he won the Austin Critics’ Table award for Outstanding Instrumentalist for his performance with the ASO of “Harold in Italy” by Hector Berlioz. He is also a member of the Allegro Chamber Trio with Flutist Megan Meisenbach and harpist Mary Golden. This group has been touring the United States for years and has been featured on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today” and recorded on Centaur records as The Meisenbach / Golden Duo. Bruce also recently finished a recording project on the Harmonia Mundi label with the twice Grammy-Award-nominated Choral group Conspirare conducted by Craig Hella Johnson and featuring the music of the popular young British composer Tarik O’Regan.
