A native of Columbus, Ohio, he was selected as concertmaster of the IPO following an audition that ended Dec. 19, 2014, in Tel Aviv, Israel. He will assume his position in March.

Previous awards and accolades for Radzynski’s performances including first prize at the Columbus Symphony Orchestra Young Musicians Competition in 2001 and the American String Teachers’ Association in the solo competition (senior division).
