Lorin Hollander is in the fifth decade of a professional career that began with a Carnegie Hall debut at age 11. Called "truly breathtaking" by a Chicago Tribune critic, Hollander has performed with virtually every major symphony orchestra in the world and is a heralded recitalist, lecturer and symphonic and choral conductor. In addition to collaborations with major conductors around the world, for more than 30 years Hollander has led community outreach and university residencies, giving master classes, conducting youth orchestras, counseling students, holding seminars on stagefright and training mentors for the arts and the sciences.
