Charlie Rosmarin



Charlie Rosmarin joined The Philadelphia Orchestra as associate principal percussion in January 2024. Prior to that he has performed with the Boston Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, the Houston Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony, the Dallas Symphony, the Utah Symphony, the Sarasota Orchestra, and the Malaysia Philharmonic. He also held a fellowship with the New World Symphony for four seasons.

The New York Times commented, “Charles Rosmarin handled herculean labors heroically,” in response to his chamber performance of Peter Maxwell Davies’s De Assumptione Beatae Mariae Virginis. He has also performed as soloist with the New World Symphony, playing Gabriella Smith’s Riprap for marimba and string quartet, as well as with the National Repertory Orchestra, playing Russell Peck’s triple concerto The Glory and the Grandeur.

Mr. Rosmarin has spent summers with the Tanglewood Music Center, the National Repertory Orchestra, the Music Academy of the West, the Alan Abel Orchestral Percussion Seminar, the Spoleto Music Festival, the Texas Music Festival, the National Orchestral Institute, and the Aspen Music Festival.

Mr. Rosmarin also plays percussion in a period-performance context, performing with New York’s Trinity Wall Street Baroque Ensemble, the Clarion Orchestra, the Yale Schola Cantorum, the New Vintage Baroque, and the Juilliard School’s historical performance program, Juilliard415.

Mr. Rosmarin received an undergraduate degree from the Juilliard School, studying with Dan Druckman, and a master’s degree from the New England Conservatory, studying with Will Hudgins. He has also studied with Ted Atkatz at the Colburn School and Matt Strauss at Rice University.
