Since the beginning of November, members of the John Bapst Chamber Ensemble have been sharing their love of playing music with residents of the Rehab Wing at EMMC weekly.
Violinist and Co-President, Brandon Aponte ‘19, organized this musical outreach with advisor Julienne Ewing of the music faculty and staff from the Rehab Wing. Students Christina Qiu ‘18, Brian Kim ‘18, Emily Mock ‘20 and Taryn McCoy ‘19 also provided music. Each performance includes 3-5 members using their repertoire book and ensemble skills to create a 30 minute set of music.
Plans to continue this into the new year are in the works and musicians may choose to perform every week or attend when they can find time.
Thank you Brandon Aponte and fellow musicians for you gifts of music.
