Violinist Tugs At Heart Strings

A senior at Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School is set to grace the stage with her violin talent.

Concert festival competition winner Amanda Hedgecock will be featured in Menselssohn’s Violin Concerto with the Island Chamber Sympony March 16.

Hedgecock started learning the violin at four years old using the Suzuki method at the Music Institute of Long Island, located in Manhasset. The Suzuki method instilled confidence in Hedgecock, as well as a love for music and performing.

“Amanda is a gifted musician and combines humility and harmony in her performances,” said Geri Kushner, violin instructor and co-director milimusic.com.

The gifted violinist has won many other music competitions. Most recently, she was selected as one out of 100 to perform with the National High School Orchestra in Tennessee at the American String Teachers Conference. This past November, Hedgecock was selected and performed in the Chamber All-State Orchestra in Rochester. She has been selected to perform in many Master Classes at MILI and chamber ensembles and she is a member of the New York Youth Orchestra in Manhattan.

The Island Chamber Symphony, under the baton of Jeremy Niles Kempton, will perform at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Glen Cove on Sunday, March 16 at 3 p.m.

Admission is available at the door, $15 general admission, $10 for seniors and students. St. Paul’s is located at 28 Highland Rd.

Founded in 1995 by owner Bruce Grossman, the Cultural Arts Playhouse of Plainview is a year round, regional, off-off Broadway-style theater that has produced over 500 productions including educational and touring shows. It is also located in Roslyn Heights and Wantagh.

Named as one of Long Island’s Best Live Theaters, the theater serves more than 20,000 people each year with its professional adult productions, children’s theater performances, and theater education classes for ages 7-18. Artistic Director Tony Frangipane took time out of his busy schedule to talk theater.

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.

“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.
