Zachery Kampler, a 2001 Staples grad, led the Eastern Festival Symphony Orchestra Saturday night at the Midsummer Music Festival at the Norwalk Concert Hall. All net proceeds of the concert were donated to the Hudsan Valley Cerebral Palsey Association. The all volunteer orchestra, consisting of local college and high school students, played “Overture to Egmont” by Beethoven, “Peter and the Wolf” by Prokefiev and finally Tchaikovsky’s Violin Conerto. Just days before the concert, the violinist who was supposed to play the concerto abruptly quit and Igor Pikayzen, a recent Staples graduate and soon to be Julliard student, filled in.

This was the most amazing group of talent that I have enjoyed for a long time, and they are all so young! Bravo to them all.
