Carrera Stamile is a 16 year old high school musician from Roebuck, South Carolina. She has always been highly influenced by classical music even as child, and listened to it a lot growing up. Carrera started playing violin at age 3 and continued for 8 years. At 11, she switched to mandolin due to a medical issue irritated by bowing. Since then, she has studied with several teachers. Although she loves exploring multiple styles of music, Carrera loves Bach, and it is her goal to learn all of his Six Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin. Carrera has performed two solo concerts and participated in multiple ensemble groups in the pre-college music program of Converse University and at her church. Carrera was one of the first place winners in the online 2022 Charleston Baroque Music Competition. She was also an Honors Recital soloist in the summer 2022 Masterworks Festival where she performed Bach’s Ciaccona from Partita No. 2 in D minor. In September of 2022, Carrera performed Domenico Gaudioso's Mandolin Concerto with the Piedmont Chamber Orchestra. Most recently in October of 2022, she was awarded the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Scholarship, and will be recording on From The Top, a classical music radio show broadcasted on NPR. Carrera's goal is to play classical mandolin professionally in the future. Currently, she posts music online via her YouTube channel Mandolin Princess. In the coming season, Carrera immensely looks forward to performing with the Foothills Philharmonic Orchestra. Carrera is currently playing a 2022 Double Top Israeli style mandolin built by Carlo Mazzaccara in Modena, Italy.
