On Deck with Project Prelude
Project Prelude is a new non-profit started this summer by two high school juniors at Catlin Gabel School. Violinist Cammie Lee (who plays with the Metropolitan Youth Symphony and has been a frequent regional competition winner) and flutist Isabelle Zheng (who is the co-principal flute at Portland Youth Philharmonic) saw an absence of elementary school music education in our area and decided to tackle the problem themselves. They’re now passing on their love of classical music by offering free weekly violin lessons to 4th, 5th & 6th graders at Aloha-Huber Park K-8 School.
