The Spotlight Chamber Players will be featured in a concert at Whispering Winds Retirement on Sunday, June 11 at 1pm in the Large Activity Room.
“The Spotlight Chamber Players have had several performances at HDCM events and in the community, and this annual concert is a culmination of the students’ work during this past season. The concert will include repertoire by Corelli, Mozart, Lipinski, and more,” states Executive Director Isabelle Senger. This concert is free and open to the public.
The following students were selected to participate in this year’s Spotlight Chamber Players program: Mateo Garza (violin), Jacob Lorenz (violin), and Amy Wheeler (cello). This program provides a high level of chamber music instruction to aspiring young musicians. Included is weekly chamber music instruction with Isabelle Senger and select visiting artists, complimentary admission to all HDCM events, and compensated performance opportunities through the year.
Auditions are held yearly, and open to violin, viola, cello, and bass students in grades 6-12
with three or more years of private study and intermediate to advanced levels of playing. This year’s students come from the private teaching studios of Travis Allen and Isabelle Senger.
