Joseph Lin, 32, will join the Juilliard String Quartet as first violinist beginning in 2011, joining violinist Ronald Copes (quartet member since 1997), violist Samuel Rhodes (1969) and cellist Joel Krosnick (1974). Lin follows violinist Nick Eanet (who is, by the way, a distant relative of Curtis Institute pianist Eleanor Sokoloff), who is resigning because of health problems.
Lin, a regular at the Marlboro School and Festival, is a Harvard grad and alum of the Juilliard School Pre-College program.
The Juilliard plays next in Philadelphia, hosted by the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, Nov. 14. Eanet is expected to perform, PCMS says. Information here.
