Orchestra Novo has created a scholarship fund to honor acclaimed violinist Kathleen Lenski. Since moving to Los Osos in 2000, Lenski has been happily living the “SLO life,” performing, and coaching local musicians. She currently serves as an Artistic Advisor for Orchestra Novo.
Fifty individuals contributed a total of $7100 for students attending the Orchestra Novo Summer String Music Academy. Twenty-three students from across the country attended the Academy, an immersive summer camp for committed music study. It took place at Camp Arroyo Grande July 17-24 and included string orchestra rehearsals, chamber groups, sectionals, individual coaching, as well as social activities, games, and swimming. In total, Orchestra Novo distributed $12,750 in scholarship funds to students attending the camp.
