Violinist Angela Lamb is a fierce and passionate musician equally at home playing Bach on the concert stage to improvising in a bar. She plays in forty/sixty – an intrepid, fresh string trio dedicated to new music and founded out of a desire to perform new works, bring improvisation to the concert stage, and use music as a vehicle for social commentary and change. Angela is a member of the Fort Collins Symphony violin section since 2015. She also performs with the Lucerne Festival Academy Orchestra, the Steamboat Symphony Orchestra, the Cheyenne Symphony, the Eastern Connecticut Symphony, the Hartford Independent Chamber Orchestra, the Hartford Opera Theatre, the Opera in the Ozarks Orchestra, and the Green Bay Symphony. She soloed with her sister, Kathleen Lamb, on the Bach Double Violin Concerto with the St. Croix Valley Orchestra.
Angela recently completed a Certificate in Orchestral Studies at the Lamont School of Music where she studied with Yumi Hwang-Williams. She received her masters at The Hartt School and her bachelors from Lawrence University. Angela is a teaching artist at El Sistema Colorado in Denver where she teaches violin to kindergarteners. She has fiddled since she was six and enjoys impromptu fiddling sessions at home, around a campfire, or in a pub.
Angela lives in Denver and loves reading, hot yoga, and climbing mountains in her spare time. She has a fascination for science fiction and likes to spend time with her husband, Kumail.
