Hello Presto players! My name is Kathleen Kono and I am excited to return for another year of Presto!

“Hello Rutland Presto! My name is Sarah Koon and I am very excited to start this project with you all! One of my favorite things to do is to play in an orchestra with others and I am looking forward to showing you why that is.  We are going to have a lot of fun together learning how to work as a team to make beautiful music and perform it for your family and friends at the end of our 6 week session.  I hope you’ll join us and make new friends and great music!”
