Founded in 1958,  the orchestra is currently based in Gateshead in the northeast of England.

Włoszczowska’s debut in the new role will be at the season-opening concert on September 18.

Włoszczowska was quoted by The Strad classical music magazine as saying: “I am thrilled to be joining the wonderful RNS as Leader. I was immediately taken by the player’s openness, trust, willingness to explore and always go the extra mile—an attitude that creates endless potential and makes them a world-class ensemble.

“I’m delighted to be able to contribute to what is undoubtedly a very exciting future for the group. I’m also keen to get to know the audiences around the region and make this stunning part of the UK my home.”

Włoszczowska, 29, is among the most prominent young Polish violinists. She was a prizewinner at the International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition in Poznań, western Poland, in 2016, and she also won First Prize and Audience Prize at the International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition in Leipzig, Germany, in 2018.
