Music Students Hear Philharmonic
Students and parents of Gail's Music Studio, the nonprofit music school of Moore County, were recently treated to a concert by the Carolina Philharmonic.
They heard a piano concerto by Edvard Grieg, with David Michael Wolff directing and playing piano, an opera selection from "La Boheme," done by Young Mee Jun, a flute and strings performance by Helen Kim, in addition to a medley of modern selections of Cole Porter songs and John Williams' "Harry Potter Suite."
They were transported to space with "Star Trek through the Years" and heard the unity of North and South Korea in the "Arirang."
Most of the young people have been students of Gail Summers for a number of years, but for several of them, this was the first time hearing a live orchestra performance.
Summers includes a unit study with all of her piano lessons and has previously studied the instruments of the orchestra.
"It was a real treat for the students to be able to apply their orchestral knowledge with an actual performance," she says.
