In-Home Concert

The S4zando Quartet, a wonderful student quartet from Fall Into Spring, played at the home of Barbara and Jim MacGinnitie, loyal supporters of both Franklin Pond and the Atlanta Symphony. The cellist was unable to attend, so Brad Ritchie joined the group. It was a lovely evening. Everyone enjoyed the music and enjoyed talking to the musicians. This was the sort of occasion chamber music was written for and we love the intimacy of house concerts. Thank you, Barbara and Jim!

Our Fall Into Spring manager, Lachlan McBane, conducted a concert of his Bravo Homeschool Strings on Monday, May 10. Tanya Clements played Telemann Viola Concerto with them. The whole evening was really lovely. Good work, Lachlan and Tanya!
