Making Music with Mozart Mentors
Posted 12/13/2012 10:00AM

This past fall, Naylani Halpern-Wight ’14 joined Mozart Mentors, a semi-professional chamber orchestra at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. Mozart Mentors was created by Clorinda Noyes, a member of the Portland Symphony Orchestra, and Tony Antolini, the director of choral music at Bowdoin College. This unique orchestra combines the expertise of professional musicians with the talent and enthusiasm of budding artists — providing a much-needed venue for the music community. One professional musician in each of the string sections of the orchestra acts as a mentor to the student musicians in their group.

Naylani was invited to join Mozart Mentors after participating for several summers in the chamber music program at the New England Suzuki Institute — whose founders also initiated Mozart Mentors. On December 1 and 2, she performed in two concerts of Charpentier's Messe de Minuit pour Noel, playing first violin.
