Masterclass with Award Winning Violist - Matthew Young

On May 3, 2015, an award winning violist, Matthew Young, from the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, came to give a masterclass to our chamber students.  Our students played chamber works by Dvorak, Rossini, and Schubert.  Our students had a wonderful time performing for Mr. Young. Thank you Matthew Young!
