Ken Lambert, baroque violin, joined New Trinity Baroque in 2006. He is a freelance violinist in the Atlanta area. Originally from a small town named Covelo in rural Northern California, Ken began his violin studies with Donna Lim, local Suzuki teacher/Volunteer Fire Captain. It soon became evident that playing the violin was more than a passing fancy for Ken's reputation as a fine musician began to grow. After graduating from High School, Ken was awarded a full tuition scholarship from the San Francisco State University School of Music and enrolled there to study violin performance with Ge-Fang Yang and the Alexander String Quartet. At SFSU Ken won the Concertmaster Chair of the University Symphony and was featured twice as a soloist. After earning his BA in Violin Performance, Ken accepted an Assistantship as a Graduate Student at the Florida State School of Music. There, he continued to excel in his musical studies performing with the University's Symphony, Opera, Chamber Orchestra, and Graduate String Quartet as well as the Tallahassee Symphony.
Ken earned his Master of Music degree in 2003 and moved to the Atlanta area to begin a carreer as a violinist. Since that date, he has become a ubiquitous face in the freelance world performing regularly with the Symphonies of Columbus, Macon, Augusta, Greenville, and Charleston. Beside being a member of New Trinity Baroque, Ken is also concertmaster of the Gainesville Symphony Orchestra in Gainesville, GA where he has been featured multiple times as a soloist, and plays with the Gwinnett Ballet Theatre orchestra, also directed by Predrag Gosta. He lives with his wife, in Lawrenceville, GA.
