How much stamina and perseverance do you have? I bet it can’t begin to match that of kids in Play On, Philly! — a rigorous after school program that uses music as a way to teach young people important life skills.
I spent several rehearsal sessions with the orchestra on the St. Francis de Sales campus this spring and learned first-hand how determined these kids are to prove their worth — not just in music, but in life.
You can hear for yourself.
