Ginny Respess Coaches “Franklin Pond, Too”
The Franklin Pond Too quartet students are slightly younger than the Franklin Pond students but no less enthusiastic. Violinists Charlie Tantillo and Steven Chiou, violist Emma DeJarnette and cellist Mason Johnston have also had two weeks of coaching by The Florida Orchestra violinst Virginia (Ginny) Respess. They are quickly learning it takes a lot of teamwork to play well in a string quartet. Their final concert will be at Canterbury Court August 4th at 7:30. Emma is also plays bluegrass on the violin and has promised to play a couple of her solos on the concert.
