Da Vinci Quartet Announces Residency with the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony Association
The Da Vinci Quartet—violinists Jerilyn Jorgensen and Susan Jensen, violist Leslie Perna, and cellist Katharine Knight—has announced a new residency with the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony Association. "We are absolutely thrilled to be involved with the CSYSA," says Jorgensen, Da Vinci Quartet cofounder and first violinist. "We will be coaching sectionals, demonstrating ensemble techniques and performance styles, and presenting bowing workshops. We'll also be demonstrating intonation rehearsal techniques." The Da Vinci Quartet also will coach CSYSA chamber quartets, as well as presenting competition-focused master classes on individual instruments, emphasizing specific repertoire. Future plans include expanding the CSYSA's chamber-music program for younger children through the Da Vinci Quartet's extensive experience in a variety of innovative education and outreach programs.
