Young Artists Program

Every summer young musicians are given the opportunity to perform as soloists with our professional orchestra. William Schatzkamer, one of the founders of the orchestra and its first conductor and music director, established this tradition which continues to this day. Through it the GFO has introduced many talented young players to the music profession. To acknowledge Maestro Schatzkamer’s vision, the GFO Board established the William Schatzkamer Young Artist Fund to support future Young Artists.
Music Teachers: If you have a student that you believe should be considered as a Young Artist with the Gateway Festival Orchestra, please contact Deberah Haferkamp at kwrtet@aol.com
