Students Tap Music Mentor Knowledge

Some budding young musicians got the chance to work with some of the best on Tuesday.

Members of the Benson High orchestra got to meet and rehearse with members of the Omaha symphony.

The adults have been able to make a living from their art and they have lots of expertise to share with ambitious young teens like Brittany Grimaldo who has been playing violin since fourth grade.

The Benson sophomore said, “They're like one of my heroes because I can look up to them and learn how to play from them. It'll help me better in my violin and my techniques. And I'm just so excited."

The symphony musicians say they're excited too. They saw lots of improvement in just a few hours with the young musicians.

Tuesday’s event was part of the symphony's Music Mentor program.
