Sound of Strings

Doris Norton, violinist, has been an active professional musician in the San Antonio area for many years. A graduate of the famed Juilliard School of Music, she has performed in a wide variety of musical capacities during her career. In addition to engaging in solo recitals and chamber music performances in Texas and on the East Coast, she has been a member of the Florida, Houston and San Antonio Symphony Orchestras, playing under such distinguished conductors as Leopold Stokowki, Sir Thomas Beecham, and Leonard Bernstein. Her professional experience has also included appearances with orchestras in various popular shows, with performers as diverse as Red Skelton, Liberace, Vikki Carr, Glen Campbell, Rod Stewart, Englebert Humperdink, and Joel Gray, as well as in national road show musicals with Yul Brynner, Carol Channing, Mickey Rooney, and Richard Harris.
Ms. Norton has supplied music for weddings, receptions, company and private parties, convention and grand opening events. The ensembles described in this brochure indicate the varied stringed instrument performing groups that Ms. Norton has developed over the years.
The ensembles have enjoyed much success among people who prefer the elegance of strings, the variety of repertoire that Ms. Norton offers, and the refinement that a group of highly professional musicians can add to any social event. In addition to standard published music, many of the selections offered by these ensembles have been developed by professional arrangers expressly for Ms. Norton. This added touch gives a unique repertoire diversity not easily found elsewhere.
