Amelia Piscitelli Artist Profile

Amelia Piscitelli made her professional debut with Camerata Chicago in our October 2016 Sweetest Day Series and went on to perform the Vivaldi Four Seasons in October 2017. We are now recording the Four Seasons this summer for a new educational CD primarily for children which will include a performance of the complete work, the poetry Vivaldi wrote and numerous demonstrations of the sound effects he uses. As part of the recording project, we have two concerts to support the project on July 13 in Griffith and July 14 in Wayne.

The following video is Amelia’s debut with Camerata Chicago as part of the Sweetest Day Series:

Amelia has been smiling to classical music since infancy and formally began playing violin at the age of four. From 2009-2014, she studied violin with Debbie Edwards, then in late Summer 2014, she began studying with Drostan Hall, her current teacher. Having recently turned 17, she has just completed her junior year at Hammond Baptist High School, and greatly enjoys playing violin, teaching violin, and playing specials with her violin students at church. She relishes the chamber music opportunities afforded her at Sforzando String Camp for the last 7 summers and has been privileged to be a member of the Camerata Chicago Academy Orchestra since 2015.

Amelia is Concert Master of the Camerata Chicago Academy Orchestra. She performed an entire recital of virtuoso classics on 98.7WFMT Introductions on December 3, 2016. She was accompanied by Cindy Trowbridge and performed:

Violin Sonata No. 4 in D Major, HWV371, George Frideric Handel
