I’m going to shamelessly plug a fabulous young violinist here, who just happens to be the daughter of a couple of good friends, but I believe you’re going to be hearing a lot about her in the near future. Serena Harnack has been studying classical violin since the age of 4 and has just completed her first year at Berklee on a full scholarship! I’ve known her mom since our college days at NIU and her father since I became a customer at their very cool music store in Lombard, IL. when I was gigging in the late 90’s. Both of her parents (Mandy and Steve) are great musicians and have definitely done a fine job instilling music into their daughter by encouragement and by example.
