Fourteen year-old violist Samuel Zacharia is co-principal viola of the Portland Youth Philharmonic, an active member of the Perlman Music Program and a keen chamber musician who collaborates with peers and professionals alike in a number of ensembles, including Camerata PYP. Samuel is a student of Brian Quincey in Portland and studies under Jeffery Irvine and Itzhak Perlman through the Perlman Music Program. Passionate about using music to connect with others, Samuel performs in outreach concerts and events throughout the Portland metropolitan area, and is a viola coach to PYP’s own Young String Ensemble. On March 1, 2014, his 15th birthday, Samuel is thrilled to have the opportunity to share the Bartok Viola Concerto with you!
