Kudos from Janet Horvath
Following her visit to Franklin Pond for masterclasses and private lessons, Janet Horvath wrote an endearing article about Franklin Pond.
“You’d never suspect that in a lovely suburb in Atlanta, in a home surrounded by statuesque trees and a pond full of raucous frogs, young people ages 8-18 are playing chamber music at an amazing level. Founded by long-time Atlanta Symphony violinist and educator extraordinaire, Ronda Respess, Franklin Pond now entering its 20th year, is a unique combination of concentrated coaching and inspiring musical nurturing for serious young musicians. Between retreats, masterclasses, coaching sessions, and performances in the community, the students become friends for life.”
