Arts education

    Students at North Philadelphia’s Gesu School got a treat yesterday. David Kim, principal violinist for the Philadelphia Orchestra, performed in the school’s gym.

    Kim is visiting schools to bring classical music to students who otherwise wouldn’t get to experience it. He also inspired some of the Gesu students to pursue their musical goals. Peter Crimmins has the full story with audio.
