Philadelphia Orchestra Members Perform for String Students

Instrumental music teacher, Michael McGarry, reports that string stu­dents from all three Pennsbury mid­dle schools attend­ed a per­for­mance by a quar­tet of musi­cians from the Philadelphia Orchestra.  “Students lis­tened to pieces from the clas­si­cal reper­toire by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven in the newly-refurbished Pennwood audi­to­ri­um,” said Mr. McGarry.  Performers includ­ed Yu-Ting Chen and Jonathan Beiler, vio­lins; Renard Edwards, vio­la, and Richard Harlow, cello.

An inter­est­ing question/answer ses­sion fol­lowed the 35-minute per­for­mance,” added Mr. McGarry. “This is the third time tremen­dous string musi­cians from this world-class orches­tra have come to Pennsbury.  I’m hon­ored to call Mr. Harlow a col­league and friend.”
