The New York Times has reported that Erin Keefe, concertmaster at the Minnesota Orchestra, is being considered for the same post with the New York Philharmonic. According to the Times, Keefe will play with the orchestra on Friday and Saturday nights, with music director Alan Gilbert conducting Mozart.

 

Keefe came to the Minnesota job in September, 2011, to replace Jorja Fleezanis. The orchestra has been locked out since October, 2012, and Keefe has frequently been rumored to be in demand for other positions. She previously played with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and the Brooklyn Chamber Music Society in New York.
