Mr. Anshelevich was the soloist and co-principal cellist for the Moscow State Conservatory Orchestra for 12 seasons. After emigrating to the USA, his first audition was for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. He earned the position and served as Associate Principal Cello with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra from 1977 to 2015. Mr. Anshelevich has served on the faculty of Southern Methodist University and the University of Dallas.
