Young Artists Spotlight 2021: String Soloists From Bakersfield

For this episode we welcome back a pair of string soloists who have performed before on Young Artists spotlight — April Park and Claire Park. They are sisters, and they both attend Stockdale High School in Bakersfield. April plays viola, and Claire plays violin. We hear them perform some solo pieces and a duo, with music from Henryk Wieniawski, Fritz Kreisler, William Walton, Arthur Benjamin, and Johann Halverson.

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