Anhared Stowe has soloed with the Farmington Valley Symphony five times. She has been actively performing and teaching in Greater Hartford for over 40 years and has recently retired from the Hartford Symphony Orchestra after 46 years. In addition to serving as its Principal Second Violin, Ms. Stowe also became the first member of the HSO to be honored with an endowed chair. Ms. Stowe has also performed as soloist with orchestras in Iowa, Connecticut, and at age 15, in Florida, with the Sarasota Symphony Orchestra, where she was also a member.


Ms. Stowe earned her Bachelor of Music degree at the Juilliard School, and her Master of Music degree under the tutelage of Charles Treger at The Hartt School.

Ms. Stowe has worked with members of the Juilliard, Hungarian, and Guarneri String Quartets, the Beaux Arts and Albeneri Trios, as well as Janos Starker, Arthur Balsam, and Joseph Fuchs. Other chamber music experience includes performing at the Blue Hills and Colby College summer music festivals, and touring with the North Carolina School of the Arts throughout Italy.  She has recorded the music of Stephen Gryc on the Opus One label, and music by Schubert, Janácek, and Hovhaness on NWCE’s own label. Non-classical recordings include work with the British rock group “The Lilys” and for “The Pernice Brothers” album “Overcome by Happiness”, which was a “Top Ten” in Amplifier magazine. Recently, Ms. Stowe was heard on NPR’s “Morning Edition”, accompanying the poet Edgar Silex with a work of her own composition.


During her time as Artistic Director for New World Trio, Ms. Stowe built the ensemble into a substantial presence in New England, with the group in-residence at The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts. Two separate music series were supported there in addition to other performances throughout the region. Significant foundation and institutional support for NWT followed, and by the close of her tenure there, New World had become Connecticut’s premier home-grown chamber music ensemble. Ms. Stowe was subsequently asked by NWT’s board to resume her role as Artistic Director, and the trio has been actively performing for the past three years.
