Meet the Da Camera Young Artists

The Da Camera Young Artist Program is a fellowship program for emerging professional instrumentalists, singers and composers. This program is designed to achieve two goals: 1) Provide career-expanding experiences and training to the next generation of artists, encouraging them to create music for the community throughout their careers, and 2) Offer young students and neglected audiences exposure to great music and talented performers, using music as a vehicle for scholastic exploration and inspiration.
Da Camera Young Artists participate in an exciting variety of performances, workshops and school visits. They perform at the Wortham Center, The Menil Collection, in HISD schools and even in nightclubs.
The 2012/2013 Da Camera Young Artists are: Julia Fox, soprano; Carlton Ford, baritone; Sonja Harasim, violin; Ioana Ionita, violin; Whitney Bullock, viola; Caroline Nicolas, cello; David Conner, bass; Aaron Perdue, flute; Yvonne Chen, piano; Geraldine Ong, piano; Emily Klein, harp; Nicolai Jacobsen, composer and Mark Buller, composer.
