Chamber-music camp to hold concert

Provided to the Tribune

Every summer the Villa Sinfonia Foundation offers a two-week chamber music camp at Zephyr Point, 660 Highway 50.

The teachers are professional musicians, gifted in their ability to work with students of all ages and abilities.

Participants in the camp, including parents and siblings as well as senior high school and college students, will present a family ensemble concert that is open to the public at 8 p.m. Wednesday in the Tahoe Center dining room.

Directors Roy and Lynn Oakley have an extensive musical background and have received a Certificate of Honor from the Board of Supervisors for the City and County of San Francisco, honoring their 25 years of outstanding service to the community.

They established the Villa Sinfonia Foundation in 1975, with other instrumental teachers to develop string musicians of all ages and abilities through the performance of chamber music.

Villa Sinfonia gives regular performances for San Francisco events and has played concerts in Carnegie Hall, Austria, Germany, Italy, England and at international music festivals. More advanced students are given the opportunity to play in the Villa Sinfonia Chamber Orchestra with its own concert series.
