Young Musicians Concert

Dear Members of Faith Lutheran, Friends, Families & Guests,

The Worship, Music and Arts Committee cordially invites you to a concert presented by four amazing young musicians following the Saturday service on January 12.  The concert is a free-will offering only and will begin at approximately 6:15 PM and will last about 1 hour.  This is your opportunity to hear some of the up & coming, accomplished musicians from our area.

The participants are:

  • Misty Drake is a recent graduate of the Eastman School of Music and is pursuing her Masters program at the University of Miami Frost School of Music.  Misty will perform several works on the violin.
  • Cassia Drake is pursuing her Bachelor of Music degree at the Coburn Conservatory of Music.  Cassia has performed as a soloist with both the Naples Philharmonic and the Southwest Florida Symphony.  Cassia will perform several works on the viola.
  • Woodwindist Francisco Pirela will delight you with performances on the alto saxophone, the clarinet and the flute.  Francisco has played throughout the United States, including Carnegie Hall and recently taught at Miller’s Music in Bonita Springs.
  • Gabriel Chalick, a junior at Gulf Coast High School and is currently studying with Matthew Sonneborn, Principal Trumpet of the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra. Gabriel has been affiliated with the Naples Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, the Sewanee Music Festival, the Brevard North Carolina Jazz Institute and the Brevard Orchestra Institute.

Please join us in showing your support for this very special group of musicians.  A reception will follow the concert at about 7:30 PM.  Also, mark your calendars for upcoming concerts in February & March.
