Young American Musicians from Missouri Perform at Arciconfraternita Santa Maria Odigitria dei Siciliani in Rome

The magnificent setting of the Church of Santa Maria Odigitria dei Siciliani in Rome recently hosted a remarkable concert by the Camerata Virtuosi string orchestra, consisting of young and talented American musicians under the direction of Renan Leme and Kirk Trevor.

Organized by the Arciconfraternita di Santa Maria Odigitria dei Siciliani in Rome, directed by the Primicerio Don Renzo Giuliano, the event was a resounding success, drawing an enthusiastic audience that filled this Roman church.

The rich program ranged from timeless classics by Vivaldi, Mozart, and Tchaikovsky to contemporary works by composers like Astor Piazzolla. This variety highlighted the skill and technical precision of the young musicians from Columbia Public Schools (CPS) and the Missouri Academy of Music (MAM).

Led by Renan Leme (BRA/USA) and Kirk Trevor (ENG/USA), both directors aim to provide their students with the opportunity to perform an exciting and challenging repertoire for diverse audiences in the United States and abroad. Among the students are winners of prestigious concert competitions and members of the Missouri All-State Orchestra.

Soloists Hazel Keithan on violin and Thomas Goff on violin were highly praised for their performance of Vivaldi's Concerto RV 522. Additionally, the string ensemble featuring Griffin Byrne, Megan Zguta, Iris Weber, and Liang Lim delivered an outstanding rendition of Mozart's Quartet KV 465 "Dissonances."

The evening concluded with enthusiastic applause from the audience, who greatly appreciated both the choice of repertoire and the undeniable ability of the performers to passionately convey the varied characters of the music presented.
