ANNANDALE, VA - American Youth String Ensemble and AYPO Junior Chamber Ensemble musician, Enzo Baldanza, has been accepted into the Chamber Music Intensive Program with the Philadelphia International Music Festival. The most selective of PIMF’s Summer Programs, the Chamber Ensemble Intensive Program presents only 12 outstanding musicians, ages 13-19, with the opportunity to receive mentorship and training from members of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Throughout the program, these young musicians will participate in masterclasses, receive private lessons from members of the Philadelphia Orchestra, partake in solo performance opportunities, and more. The Chamber Music Summer Intensive focuses on not only fostering these young performers’ technique and musicianship, but also helps to build their character through performances in hospitals, libraries, and other public venues throughout the community of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.
For his audition, Enzo Baldanza performed the Mozart Violin Concerto # 3; I. Allegro, Bach Partita for Violin No. 2 in D minor; I. Allemanda, and sent a video of a vocal performance of the National Anthem at a basketball game in the Carrier Dome at Syracuse University.
