continued Learning from and interacting with professional musicians is an invaluable learning tool, said Gumpper.
“I think as many positive playing experiences that young people can have is a good thing and certainly the Boston String Quartet members were very positive, they were very nurturing and gave a lot of reinforcement to what students were doing,” said Gumpper. “Anytime that young people are interested—already their schedules are very busy—but when they’re interested in doing something extra on top of that it’s a good thing. It means they’re really into it and they want to create something special.”
The Boston String Quartet and 104 local high school musicians will take the stage for an EthnoUrban Orchestra performance on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 7:30 p.m. at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall.
