The Pocket Philharmonic launched on January 19 with a highly successful concert at the Old Town School of Folk’s Szold Hall. The enthusiastic audience — students of all ages — heard Sergei Prokofiev’s War and Peace Overture and Johannes Brahms’ Double Concerto in A minor, Op. 102, performed by an 8-piece string ensemble with the father-son duo of Stefan Hersh (violin) and Alex Hersh (cello) as soloists. The program included audience interaction with the performers and a lively Q&A session.
