Yehudi Menuhin Chamber Music Festival
This weekend BELLA was invited to play at the Yehudi Menuhin Chamber Music Festival held at SF State. We got fabulous coachings and played in two masterclasses with SF State's quartet-in-residence the Alexander String Quartet, Juilliard Professor Toby Appel, Laurel Ensemble's Lori Lack, and SF State's Associate Professor of the School of Music and Dance Jassen Todorov.
The feedback and coachings were truly stellar. From teaching Julia to play with her mouth open (thanks Toby) to telling us we can take as much rubato as we want (yay!), to seeing personal videos of Tango on the streets and at Milongas (thanks Jassen), BELLA grew a lot this weekend. Thanks again to the Alexander String Quartet for putting this amazing festival on, inviting us, and taking time out to work with us for so many hours. You guys are the best!
