This concert featured nine former CSOL scholarship recipients in an enchanting afternoon of chamber music, presented in the elegant sanctuary of Second Presbyterian Church. Proceeds from the event benefit the David and Karen Stahl Memorial Scholarship Fund of the CSOL. This scholarship is given annually to the top-ranked graduating high school senior who plans to major in music in college. Having gone on to further musical studies, these student musicians came together to share their talent with Charleston while home for the holidays.


We want to thank CSO musicians Damian Kremer, Asako Kremer, Jan-Marie Christy Joyce and Tom Joyce for assisting the students to prepare the program and performances.




This year’s performers were Emma Joyce, Benjamin Kremer, Karen Mendes, Manuel Mendes, Elliott Weeks, violins; Marshall McArthur, Yosef Chang, viola; Erica Kremer, cello; Laura Holmi, Trumpet; and Caleb Borick, piano. (Click here for student bios).
