Chamber Music at the Museum: The Spirit of Strings

Sunday, February 19, 2023

On Sunday, February 19, 2023, at 2:00 pm, the Hi-Desert Nature Museum will welcome violinist Debbie Amador and special guests Jim Lakey on cello, Dave Leon on Double Bass, and members of the Joshua Tree Youth Orchestra for a wonderful presentation titled “The Spirit of Strings“. The presentation will feature string pieces from several of classical music’s all-star composers such as Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, George Frideric Handel, Henry Purcell, and more!

Debbie Amador earned her Bachelor of Music at DePauw University, followed by a Master of Fine Arts from the University of California Irvine and an advanced studies degree in
performance and pedagogy from the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music. During and after her studies she performed as concertmaster and principal roles with
several orchestras, played for awards shows such as the Radio and American Music Awards, toured Europe, Latin America, and Asia with the Hollywood Pops Orchestra, and played at
Segerstrom Concert Hall with Mozart Camerata, at the Hollywood Bowl as well as several other concert halls in California. Debbie has lived in Joshua Tree for the last 9 years and has built up her own Music Studio. She teaches piano, violin, cello, and ukulele. She has founded the Joshua Tree Youth Orchestra and is continuously adding music-related classes and camps to enrich the children of our High Desert communities.
