Pacifica String Quartet with the High School Orchestra

February 23, 2004

“Masumi Per Rostad speaks to the orchestra students. "This guy’s heart was on his sleeve. You’re playing a piece about his home country. It’s just great music. Every time you play a piece, you have to feel like it’s the best piece you’ve ever played. You have to back it up,” he said.

Brandon Vamos plays on his rare 1580 Gasparo da Salo
cello directly to the cello section of the orchestra.

While her three collegues tutored the larger Symphonic Orchestra, Miss Ganatra worked on
technique with the younger String Ensemble in an adjacent room.
