Free concert featuring Canyon Crest Academy musicians to be held April 21

The San Diego Chapter of the American Harp Society and Mission Trails Regional Park are sponsoring a free one-hour concert on Sunday, April 21.  The 3 p.m. concert will feature two accomplished local musicians, Julia Marie Schorn, harpist, and Catherine Marie Marshall, flutist. Both are local residents and students at Canyon Crest Academy. The concert will also feature harpists Maho Morikawa and Christina Sumprer.

Julie Marie Schorn, harpist

Julia and Catherine will perform the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto, Movement II, accompanied by Rebecca Ramirez on piano. The program will also feature a unique selection of harp pieces, including Sonatina for Harp by Sergiu Natra, Impromptu by Gabriel Faure, Le Rossignol by Franz Liszt, Sonata No.1 by John Parry, and Prelude and Sonatina by F.J. Naderman.

Julia Marie Schorn, 18, is a senior at Canyon Crest Academy, where she is a member of the Instrumental Music Conservatory Program. Julia is the principal harpist of the Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonia of the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory. She is in her sixth year with the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory. She has been selected for the prestigious CODA California All State Honors Orchestra the past two years.

Julia is the president of the CCA Music Moves Community Service Club in which she organizes monthly community outreach performances, with other student musicians, vocalists, and dancers, primarily in nursing homes and settings where the homebound residents do not have the opportunity to attend concerts or recitals. Julia performs in many venues and enjoys performing with the St. Therese of Carmel Adult Choir. Julia began her musical studies on the piano at the age of 5. She began her studies on the pedal harp at age 12 under Sheila Sterling, retired principal harpist of the San Diego Symphony. She performs on a Salvi Apollo Concert Grand harp.
