Young Artists Spotlight 2020: Free26 String Quartet

Feb 26, 2020

Our performers this week on Young Artists Spotlight are a string quartet from the Simba School of Music in Fresno. They call themselves Free26 – they are all 7th graders and all but one have birthdays on the 26th. Clever kids. They’ve been playing together for many years. The cellist and violist have played together since they were 2 years old. They all went to Fresno's Manchester GATE School and now go to Computech Middle School in the Fresno Unified School District. 

Penelope Freeman: violin 1
Izzy Cobb: violin
Xavion Torres: viola
Betsy Woodward: cello

On this week's show, they will perform works including:

Golliwog’s Cakewalk  by Claude Debussy (arr. Latham)

Brandenburg Concerto No.5 (excerpt)  by J.S. Bach

Tango  (arr. McLean)
