Phillip Rose

Phillip Rose was born in Pueblo, Colorado (USA), where he did his early training. He was the Principal Violist of the orchestras in Toledo, Omaha, and New Orleans before moving to New Zealand and subsequently joining the NZSO in 1994. Phillip has also been a soloist, chamber musician and teacher. As a member of the 1986 World Philharmonic in Rio de Janeiro, he first heard about the NZSO from NZSO Sub-Principal Violist Brian Shillito, who was also a WPO member that year. Phillip has performed at the New Zealand Festival of Chamber Music in Nelson, and with the NZSO Chamber Orchestra.

As a founding Trustee of the Michael Monaghan Young Musicians Foundation, Phillip worked with many NZSO colleagues to provide performing opportunities for young instrumentalists in the Wellington region. Phillip collaborates with NZSO colleagues Lyndsay Mountfort and Peter Sharman in the development of Impresario, the web-based orchestral management software currently used by the NZSO and other Australasian orchestras. Phillip is a director of PROJECT LEONARDO LIMITED of New Zealand and Hong Kong, an Internet service provider which serves as a portal to the International Music Score Library Project (IMSLP), the international project for the creation of a virtual library of public domain music scores. Phillip’s wife, Mable Wong, was the NZSO’s Principal Music Librarian from 2000 to 2016.

In the 2011-12 season, Phillip played as an exchange player with the Niederrheinischen Sinfoniker in Mönchengladbach, Germany. In 2015, Phillip appeared as viola soloist with his hometown orchestra in Colorado, the Pueblo Symphony Orchestra.
