Apprentices and Sarah Bonomo Master Messaien

Tanya, Eric and apprentices with Sarah BonomoLast night I was the very proud producer of an apprentice concert.

In very little time, Natalie Carducci, Gretchen Claassen, Derek Tam, joined by clarinettist, Sarah Bonomo learned and performed one of the most exciting performances of Messaien’s Quartet for the End of Time I have ever heard!

I also want to thank our coaches, Anna Presler, Jerry Simas, and Eric Zivian for their time and hard work on it with them.

Bravi tutti!!

Oh, and now the pressure is on Left Coast Ensemble (we, the coaches) to perform the same piece on the Benvenue House Music series in April. It’s hard to imagine improving on the version I heard them do last night…. but we will do our best!
