GABRIEL and the INTERNATIONAL YOUTH ORCHESTRA | Goodhart Photography, Northern Virginia Loudoun County Event Photographer
I had the pleasure of listening to and photographing 10 year old Gabriel performing the second movement of Haydn's Piano Concerto in D major, accompanied by the International Youth Orchestra at Christ Redeemer church in Sterling.
The International Youth Orchestra includes over 100 young musicians from nearly a dozen different countries who gather together every year to share music and create cultural bridges between the participating countries.
Gabriel has only been playing for 4 years, but he obviously has a gift. He plays so fluently, his fingers just fly across the keyboard.
In addition to being talented, he is a very sweet, handsome boy.
Congratulations, Gabriel, for being selected to play with the International Youth Orchestra and doing such a wonderful job!
