In this video montage, MYA Executive Director Allan Dennis describes Chicago Symphony Orchestra Principal Violist Charlie Pikler and the contributions he has made to MYA:
Charlie Pikler was recently honored with MYA’s Take Note Award, an award given to someone who has personally had a tremendous, special impact on students in MYA. The students in this video reflect on their experiences working with Charlie Pikler, principal violist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Pikler has devoted hours coaching chamber music, conducting viola sectionals, and founding and directing I’Solisti MYA, a chamber orchestra of musicians selected by audition chosen to perform a series of concerts in public schools and special venues during each season. Participating students are given scholarships and have the opportunity to solo with a movement from a concerto on this concert series.
