About Edith Eisler
For nearly seven decades, violinist, violist, educator, and author Edith Eisler devoted her life to classical string music. She was a member of the landmark New World Symphony (one of the first to provide performance opportunities for minority musicians who were under-represented in mainstream orchestras). She also was an active chamber player and presenter, and a longtime string teacher, offering classes at the Harlem School for the Arts, Turtle Bay Music School, and other institutions throughout the New York area. For 25 years, Eisler was a corresponding editor and frequent contributor to Strings magazine. She died in 2011 at age 86.
