Tibor Zelig was born in 1921 and studied violin from the age of 5. He received an Artist's Diploma from the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest, where he was the last pupil of the legendary Jenö Hubay. At the age of 18, Zelig moved to the US, where he studied at the Julliard School and the Curtis Institute. After graduating, he joined the National Symphony Orchestra, and played with the NBC Symphony under Toscanini. He made his solo debut in Town Hall, New York.

He subsequently played with the Portland Symphony and the Utah Symphony, where he performed the premiere of Leroy Robertson's Violin Concerto. From Salt Lake City he moved to LA, where he worked for RKO Studios in Hollywood, and became concertmaster of the San Diego and Long Beach Symphonies. In Hollywood he worked with The Beach Boys, Neil Diamond, Frank Zappa, Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra. He died in 2015 after 70 years as a professional musician.
