From Music Teacher Sarah Ellis:
Through our partnership with VH1 Save the Music we were able to invite trombonist to TYWLS Bronx Jennifer Wharton to work with Geneseo. In the workshop, students listened to Ms. Wharton play the bass trombone, got to hear about her path to being a professional musician, and ask questions. The class performed for Ms. Wharton and received feedback on how to improve their playing. Ms. Wharton currently plays in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and Carole King's Beautiful on Broadway.
