Young Glen Ellyn violinist making her mark in music world
GLEN ELLYN — At 14 years of age, Serena Harnack of Glen Ellyn has won numerous musical competitions and served as featured soloist in multiple symphony orchestras, including the Lake Forest Symphony and DuPage Symphony Orchestra.
Harnack, a ninth-grade student at St. Francis College Preparatory in Wheaton, was the first-place winner earlier this month of this year's DuPage Symphony Orchestra's Young Artists Auditions for her rendition of Vieuxtemps Concerto No. 4, which earned her a spot as the featured soloist with the DuPage Orchestra. This was Harnack’s third first-place finish in 2013.
Harnack said she was pleased she was able to play with the orchestra March 16 at North Central College. Although at a young age, Harnack appears to have already mastered something that challenges many performers — stage fright.
