Young Artists Spotlight 2021: String Soloists From Fresno

For this episode we turn to string soloists. This week’s artists are all in high school, and they all have studied at the Simba School of Music in Fresno. Violinist Emma Woodward performs music of Max Bruch, violinist Rowan Crass performs work of Fritz Kreisler, and bassist Emma Sigala performs music of Saint-Saëns.

Support for Young Artists Spotlight comes from the Bonner Family Foundation and the California Arts Council's Arts in Public Media grant.
