We are so proud of recent Play On, Philly! graduate, violinist Akili Farrow (pictured with Maestro Yannick Nezet-Seguin of The Philadelphia Orchestra. Akili was just appointed Concert Master of Musicopia String Orchestra and she won Second Principal Violin in Philadelphia Sinfonia Youth Orchestra, for which she will have a solo in the first concert.
Akili is now a freshman at String Theory Charter School in Philadelphia.
Akili is continuing her POP experience as an Ambassador. That means she is returning to POP each week to mentor our younger students and also will perform with us in both large and small ensembles and for special "Ambassador" events. School just started last week, but already Akili has been back to St. Francis 3 times.
Play On, Philly! has so many accomplished students -- both musically and academically - and it a blessing.
