On a Positive Note: Violist Gets Recital Boost from Philadelphia Orchestra

thumbnail_headshot_main.jpg

Brooke Mead, a masters student in viola performance at Temple University, is just one of thousands of students who was looking forward to a senior or graduate recital, only to be devastated as schools shifted to online instruction because of the Covid-19 pandemic. But she found unexpected help when she asked how a musician can deal with the disappointment of cancelled performances during a Zoom panel discussion with Philadelphia Orchestra Assistant Principal Cellist Yumi Kendall. Kendall and other orchestra members stepped up to help her stream her recital as part of the Virtual Philadelphia Orchestra series this Friday April 24 at 7 pm. Mead talks about this reversal in fortune and preparing for an online recital.

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
