WILMINGTON – The Wilmington Symphony Orchestra is pleased to host the annual Free Family Concert featuring the Wilmington Symphony Youth Orchestra and Junior Strings, on Sunday, April 26th at 4 p.m. in Kenan Auditorium. General admission seating is free and tickets are available at the door.
The annual Free Family Concert is sponsored by Southeastern Nephrology Associates in memory of Dr. Gary Hyman, and features a solo performance by the Junior Division winner of the 38th Annual Richard R. Deas Student Concerto Competition, Camden Stohl, violin, accompanied by the Wilmington Symphony Youth Orchestra. Also on the concert will be the Girls’ Choir of Wilmington.
Sandy Errante, director of the Girls’ Choir of Wilmington says of the collaboration, “This is always a great experience for us for two reasons: The choir has the opportunity to be accompanied by an orchestra, which offers so much more color to the music, and it allows two independent groups of student musicians to combine forces and perform together. The biggest challenge will be fitting everyone on stage!”
Camden Stohl is an 8th grader at Roland Grise Middle School. She has studied violin since she was 2 with her mother, Anne Stohl. Her plans are to study at least through high school and most likely through college. Camden is currently in her 5th year with the Girls Choir of Wilmington and has been playing with the Wilmington Symphony Junior Strings for 3 years. She plays volleyball on the RGMS team and also does the advanced art program at RGMS. In her free time, she enjoys swimming, decorating cakes, cooking and crafts of any sort. She also loves to play all different styles of fiddle music.
