Young Artists Spotlight 2021: String Soloists From Fresno

For this episode, we feature three talented violinists from the Fresno area. They are all in high school, and they all participate in music at the Simba School of Music. Charis Gray performs music of Édouard Lalo, Elsa Macias performs work of Mozart, and Nicole Ward performs music of Archangelo Corelli.  

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