Ms. Winterstein is the concertmaster of the Vermont Symphony, the acting assistant concertmaster of the Rhode Island Philharmonic, she performs regularly with the Handel and Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project, and she is currently serving as concertmaster of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra.
