EMS Chamber Virtuosi take "master class" then open for Joshua Bell

Prior to his Sunday (1/22) performance at the Bergen Performing Arts Center, American Grammy Award winning violinist Joshua Bell met with our violin students for a private workshop.  Then The Elisabeth Morrow School Chamber Virtuosi, conducted by Music teacher Amelia Gold, took the stage as the opening performance for Joshua Bell.

Amelia Gold: “It was an unbelievable experience. We played with Joshua Bell and it changed the lives of our students.  Having an opportunity to meet, play with and talk to an artist of his magnitude is incredible. He walked in to our rehearsal and said, 'you sound amazing!' His artistry is so inspiring and the experience of sharing the stage with Joshua Bell is one that will stay with our students forever.”
