Probably the best known violinist in Sarasota, Daniel Jordan has been concertmaster of the Sarasota Orchestra since 1998. In addition he is also Principal Second Violin of the Santa Fe Opera Orchestra, and has played in the violin sections of the St. Louis Symphony, Naples Philharmonic, Florida Orchestra, and the New World Symphony as well as frequent appearances with the Sarasota Music Festival.
He is a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Interlochen Arts Academy. Dan has twice returned to serve as concertmaster of the New World Symphony in their alumni concerts. He plays the ex Humphreys 1695 Peter Guarneri of Mantua, and his bow is a Dominique Peccatte, both on loan from the Steinwachs Family Foundation. Dan is married to Sarasota Orchestra violinist Chung-yon Hong and the very proud father of five year old Spencer.
