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.”
