Sonora Bach Festival Youth Concert An enjoyable concert highlighting the talents of the musical youth of Tuolumne County. This concert will feature vocal and instrumental students chosen by audition as well as invited guest artist, violinist Maggie Wilcox, a high school junior and student of Brook Moes.
Her program will include two movements from one of Bach’s unaccompanied works for the violin.
Ms. Wilcox has been playing violin since she was 9 years old, and loves it, although as she says, “it has caused me more than my share of tears along the way!” Besides music, some of her interests include history, English, literature, children, teaching, and friends. In her spare time, although there isn’t much of it, she has the pleasure of teaching violin to two lovely girls ages 6 and 12. Her future plans are to become a mother to many children, and a giver of music and joy to those who otherwise wouldn’t have it. She would like to thank Mr. Moes, his family, all her delightful friends from violin group, as well as her wonderful parents, for helping her stick to it throughout the hard bits. In her words, she iterated, “most of all, thanks be to God–the only reason I play at all.’
