Violinist Carol Webb has retired after 39 storied years at the New York Philharmonic. The first woman to join the first violin section, over her four decades with the Orchestra she served as Chair of the Tour Committee during the historic visit to North Korea, appeared as a soloist, and nourished her colleagues with home-baked goods. Enjoy this slideshow of Carol and the Philharmonic through the years.
