4-Year-Old Violin Prodigy Is Better Than Most Professionals
Mar 11, 2015
Birgit Thiele, his violin teacher, and the music school principal, Gudrun Mueller, reached out to a celebrity Dutch violinist by the name of Andre Rieu. Rieu quickly realized Camara's incredible skill and simply had to invite Camara to perform with him. In 2007, the two showcased a spectacular performance of "Dance of the Fairies" at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
Akim Camara is a German-born child prodigy who began playing the violin at only 2 years old. The young violinist had his first performance at age 3 when the Marzahn-Hellersdorf School of Music put on their Christmas concert, "Schneeflockchen, Weissrockchen" in 2003. With that performance, people realized Camara's true talents.
