Vivian Barton Dozor

Principal Cellist of VoxAmaDeus Orchestras

In Conversation with Richard Shapp

Sometime during the 1990s, Vivian Barton Dozor became the rock-solid fixture—the principal cellist of VoxAmaDeus’ orchestras—who is so admired by Vox’s audiences and her fellow musicians. While an orchestra’s first violinist (aka, the concertmaster) generally attracts the majority of the public’s attention, the primo cellist frequently—but unfairly—sits in the shade. So, let’s begin to redress a snub to this pivotal player in the orchestra, and especially to the vastly talented, and tremendously important, Vivian Barton Dozor.
During the Sempre Vivaldi concerts of Friday, October 17 at 8:00 p.m., at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church in Chestnut Hill, and Sunday, October 19 at 4:00 p.m. at Thomas Great Hall on the Bryn Mawr College campus, Vivian Barton Dozor will be the featured soloist in Vivaldi’s Cello Concerto in a minor, RV 422. Other featured soloists in these concerts include Paul Miller, viola d’amore, Daniel Boring, lute, and Sarah Davol, Baroque oboe.
