On March 20, 2013 we had another full house for our lunchtime recital. Seventy-five had come to listen to the Sky Lark String Quartet taking us on a musical journey from the Baroque to the early days of Jazz.
It was especially noteworthy that we had a class of third-grade students from the Livingston School with us. Their teacher Agnes Crespo has supported our series for years. Now she wants to rotate the attendance of her classes at the recitals, so that students from each grade level will have a chance to come. We hope that this will increase the impact of our series.
We were also pleased to have so many residents of the Spring Hills Assisted Living Center in Somerset with us. As always, the group was led by Ms. Edna Latorre.
A word about the extraordinary background of our musicians: Mr. Dezheng Ping, the former concertmaster of the China National Symphony Orchestra, played one of the violins. The other violin was played by Ms. Hyun Soo Lim, who has played with the Seoul Symphony. Ms. Emily Muller, a member of the Princeton Symphony, played viola. The cello was played by Ms. Carol Redfield Vizzini, the former principal cellist of the New Philharmonic and the Orchestra of St. Peter by the Sea.
