Stories of CMC's stellar students: pianists Skyler Chu and Rebecca Portnoy

Skyler Chu, a senior at Lowell High School, was one of three students who won the senior competition to play a concerto movement with the Lowell High School Symphonic Orchestra. Skyler, a piano student of Juliet McComas, played the popular Rondo all'Ungarese movement from the Concerto in D Major by Haydn for the April 9 concert. Skyler is also the concertmaster (on violin) of the Lowell HS Symphonic Orchestra and played in CMC's master class with Emanuel Ax in the fall of 2013.  Skyler will be sharing a graduation recital with fellow CMC student (also a SOTA student), Katelyn Lui at CMC's Mission District Branch on Sunday, June 28 at 4:00 pm. Katelyn is a piano student of Betty Wong and clarinet student of Michael Jordin.

Words from a Musical Discovery Camper

"I liked the kids I met at camp.
I liked the teachers and I liked learning how to play the guitar.

Performing at the end of camp was fun! I wasn't nervous because I knew what to do."

- Sadie, Musical Discovery Camper '14

From a gala volunteer:
"I love the work that CMC does and what it stands for so I was happy to help. It was also a great way for me to learn more about the areas of CMC that I am not familiar with, see the work firsthand, and meet some really interesting people!"
