Newton Mansfield

The Edward and Priscilla Pilcher Chair

Newton Mansfield

Violinist Newton Mansfield joined the New York Philharmonic in 1961. Born in Poland, he gave his first public performance in Paris in 1938 and became an American citizen in 1946.

After studying at the Peabody Conservatory, he joined the Houston Symphony in 1948 and the Baltimore Symphony in 1949. He became concertmaster of the Robert Shaw Chorale in 1951, prior to spending seven years with the Pittsburgh Symphony. He played with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra from 1959-61.


“I knew that I wanted to be a professional musician as soon as I got paid for it! In Paris when I played, I got balloons. In New York, when I was 11 or 12, I got paid!”
