Violist Nokothula Ngwenyama visits POP for Violafest!

Thanks to the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, world renowned violist Nokothula Ngwenyama visited Play On, Philly's Freire site on Thursday, January 30th.   Program Director Kathleen Krull created POP's first VIOLAFEST during which all 20 young budding viola players came to Freire to listen to Thula perform Bach, talk about her career and help our students hone their skills.  The visit was inspiring for all our of young musicians as Thula talked about the hours she practices, how she balances her home life with the schedule of a musician in demand, and what it is like to travel around the world playing her instrument.  Ms. Ngwenyama, a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, promised to try and return when she visits Philadelphia again!
