In The Spotlight: Paula's Violin

By Catherine M. Welch


Wilmington, NC – This month WHQR news has been introducing listeners to musicians from around the region with special musical talents.

We wrap up our series this morning with a relatively new Wilmington resident who spent decades in playing the violin on many of the major stages in Europe.

Paula Moekel spent much of her career in Germany playing the violin in castles and major performing halls as part of a chamber orchestra. She recently put down the violin, an instrument she first picked up at age 5.

Listen to the story of her 152-year-old violin, and hear her play.
