Visit to Temple University

Yesterday 15 Tune Up Philly students travelled to Temple University to observe a rehearsal of the Temple Symphony Orchestra. For most of our students it was their first time hearing and seeing a full orchestra, and they impressively sat in rapt attention through a 45 minute rehearsal of Bolero.

Later, Maestro Biava came into the audience and answered all of our questions. One student offered to play for him, stating that she was “really good, a pro actually.” I answered many more questions on the subway ride back to school, and was reminded how important it is to expose our students to live musicians! Thank you Temple!
