in the studio

This past Sunday night (9/15/19), five of our strings students from BRAVO George took part in the filming of a music video for a track off of Max Ribner‘s upcoming album. These students got a taste of the showbiz life, including the bright lights, cameras, so many electrical cords, craft service, catering, rubbing elbows with and learning from  fellow talent (including many BRAVO teachers and some fantastic singers), and waiting their turn. It was a fun Sunday night, and we can’t wait to see the finished product!  (Keep an eye out for details here on our website in the coming weeks and months.)
