Family string trio performs at Woodside Arts & Culture's virtual First Friday event

Woodside Arts & Culture's First Friday event for March is truly a family affair: a performance by the Costanza-Fong Family String Trio. The performance takes place online on March 5, 7 p.m.

The ensemble will perform a wide-ranging program of works for string trios and duos.

The Costanza-Fong Family String Trio features parents Debra Fong, violin, Christopher Costanza, cello, and their daughter Isabella Costanza, viola.

Fong and Christopher Costanza are both members of the Stanford University Department of Music faculty. Since 2003, Christopher Costanza has also been a member of the St. Lawrence String Quartet, Stanford's ensemble in residence. Fong is the Principal Second Violinist of the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra and a first violinist with the Santa Fe Opera Orchestra.

Isabella Costanza is studying for an Artist Diploma at the Glenn Gould School in Toronto.
