Jocelyn Vorenberg joined the Richmond Symphony in the fall of 2003, having previously served as concertmistress of the Frederick Orchestra of Maryland. In spring of 2010, she completed her Doctorate of Musical Arts at The Catholic University of America. She has taught at Virginia Commonwealth University, Interlochen Summer Arts Camp, The Cleveland Institute of Music Preparatory Program, and The Eastern Music Festival in Greensboro, North Carolina. Presently, she teaches privately in Richmond, Virginia. Dr. Vorenberg studied at Interlochen Arts Academy, Rice University and The Cleveland Institute of Music, where her principal teachers included Julia Bushkova, Kenneth Goldsmith, Linda Cerone, Stephen Rose, and William Preucil, respectively. Dr. Vorenberg was invited as a guest artist to Columbia, South America, where she coached and mentored the talented young musicians of the Filarmonica Joven de Colombia to become professional orchestra musicians.

In addition to her musical career, Dr. Vorenberg became interested in the Alexander Technique during her doctoral studies when she began to experience unmanageable tension and discomfort in her neck, shoulders, and back. She began taking lessons in Washington, DC with Ed Bilanchone, and currently, is at the end of her training at the Alexander Technique Teacher Training Center in Charlottesville, VA, to become an instructor of the Alexander Technique. Dr. Vorenberg plans to integrate this method of awareness, undoing, and freedom of choice and movement into her teaching to musicians and non-musicians.
