FAYETTEVILLE SYMPHONY

Advanced Summer Music Camp

Summer Music Camp 2019

June 24 – June 28th, 2019

Location: Fayetteville Academy, 3200 Cliffdale Road, Fayetteville, NC

About

The Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra Summer Music Camp is an individualized focused day camp that offers small ensemble playing opportunities, daily group and individualized instruction, and masterclasses/lectures for advanced instrumental students ages 13-21. The development of each student’s leadership and musicianship is emphasized as students learn to work collaboratively in this fun and inviting musical atmosphere. The students will be assigned to chamber ensembles for the week, and they will receive daily coaching sessions with professional musicians of the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra. If needed, placement auditions will be held the first day of the festival to determine placement in small ensembles. Music will be handed out the first day of the camp. The focus of coaching sessions will be on solo, chamber, and large ensemble music collaboration. There will be a culminating performance on the last day of the festival at 1pm; families will be invited to attend.

This music camp is a more intense, individualized chamber music camp different from that of band or orchestra camp. It is suited for the more dedicated and advanced players. Though no one will be turned away from participating, in addition to the age requirement, we ask that any student planning to attend must be able to play a two octave chromatic scale, and know at least 5 of the 12 major scales on their select instrument AND/OR the student has been participating in the Fayetteville Symphony Youth Orchestra for at least one year. This music camp is not intended for beginning instrumentalists. For any questions regarding whether your child can participate, please email education@fayettevillesymphony.org

Featured Musician

Randolyn Emerson – Violin

 

Randolyn Emerson, violin, begins her ninth year with the Fayetteville Symphony (completing her first season under the conductorship of Harlan Duenow).  Born into a rich and varied musical environment – her mother was a member of the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir – Randolyn was singing for audiences by age two. After finding her mother’s old instrument in a closet, however, eight-year-old Randolyn fell in love with the violin. 

Randolyn graduated summa cum laude from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music degree, having studied violin with Oscar Chausow, longtime Utah Symphony concertmaster, and voice with Betty Jean Chipman.  Her university experience included a six-week European tour with the university’s A Capella Choir, where she soloed both as a solo violinist and a solo vocalist with the choir in historical venues such as Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral, the organ loft (above the grave of composer Anton Bruckner) of St. Florian Cathedral in Linz, Austria, and Venice, Italy’s polyphonic St. Mark’s Basilica. By means of a generous scholarship, she also received excellent orchestral training at the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, CA, under the tutelage of Maestro Maurice Abravanel, Artistic Director of the Utah Symphony for more than thirty years.

Relocating to North Carolina in 1988, Randolyn became active in many area orchestras, including the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, Greensboro Symphony, North Carolina Theatre pit orchestra (25 years and counting), Tar River Orchestra, and the Raleigh and Durham Symphonies, wherein she served as each orchestra’s assistant concertmaster (and where she met her viola-playing husband, Paul).  For ten years, Randolyn was also privileged to be an extra violinist with the North Carolina Symphony.  Operas, ballets, choral oratorios, traveling Broadway shows, recordings of Robert Ward compositions, and even concerts with modern artists such as Rod Stewart, Regis Philbin, Bobby McFerrin and Clay Aiken – over the years, Randolyn’s played for them all.  She’s even made forays into fiddling, recording a CD with the bluegrass band Sweet Potato Pie and serving as a last-minute concert substitute with Lorica, the Celtic ensemble formed by WRAL-TV’s Bill Leslie.

Aside from music, Randolyn has put to good use her Master of Business Administration degree from Meredith College in Raleigh, NC, by establishingherself as a professional family history researcher and writer.  Her greatest joys, though, are always found in her faith and in her family:  sons Erik and Daniel and her always-supportive husband, Paul.
