Our second event for the season was at Gulf Coast High School.  The piano quartet met Lauren Pardee, the Orchestra Director, and the school’s two orchestra classes.  The program began with two short selections by the quartet, one of them a movement from an original composition by a close friend of Jennifer Koh, the group’s violinist. The school’s chamber group then played a selection with the professional musicians listening closely.  The coaching began. . . an alternative way to strike a pizzicato, a new and fuller bow stroke for the violins. An exchange of questions with the classes followed.
