LORI ULANOVA has been a member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since 1967. Born in New York City, she began studying piano at the age of six. When she was eleven, in spite of the fact that she was considered an accomplished pianist, she switched to the violin. A year later she received a scholarship as a special student to the Juilliard Graduate School, where she studied with Ivan Galamian. A winner of numerous awards and competitions, Ms. Ulanova concertized extensively and participated in chamber music performances with such prominent musicians as Louis Persinger, William Primrose and Leonard Rose. At the same time, she was taking a special set of classes in advanced math and science at the Bronx High School, and later went on to Sarah Lawrence college.
In addition to her Philharmonic duties, Ms. Ulanova also taught at California State University in Los Angeles for three years.
