Lindsay Bohl


Lindsay Bohl had no idea what the viola was when it was chosen for her (by her mother), but as soon as she learned to play it, she fell in love with it and promptly quit her piano lessons. After completing her Master’s Degree from Northwestern University, Lindsay won a position with the New World Symphony, under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas. It was there that she discovered her passion for playing in an orchestra and a strange enjoyment of practicing orchestral excerpts for several hours every day. Other highlights of Lindsay’s career include performing with the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra, American Ballet Theater, Phantom of the Opera on Broadway, and playing “Hava Nagila” for Itzhak Perlman. Lindsay currently serves as the Associate Principal Viola of the Boise Philharmonic. In addition to playing in the orchestra, she maintains a private studio of viola and violin students. When she’s not practicing excerpts, Lindsay enjoys cooking with her husband, Michael, crocheting, and hanging out with her cat, Millie.
