Rare Praise from Maestro Sidney Rothstein
I am writing to let you know what a great pleasure it was to have Frank Tenaglia as a soloist with the Reading Symphony Orchestra. A mid concert standing ovation is rare, be it indoors, or, as our concert was, outdoors under the stars. The fact that 6500 people jumped to their feet, and we had to play a mid concert encore, is a testament to the impact Mr. Tenaglia's voice and musicianship had on the audience. People still talk to me about his performance. You can be certain we will invite Mr. Tenaglia for a return appearance in the very near future.
--Most cordially, Sidney Rothstein - Music Director Reading and Ridgefield Symphonies
I studied violin under Sidney Rothstein from 1967 to 1969 at The Central High School of Philadelphia.
