We are starting a new series featuring some of our amazing alumni!
Our first alum is Frank Ponzio who attended PCP in 1978. He is a jazz pianist, composer, and teacher. He is very active in his community, bringing music to diverse populations. He has worked with the National Dance Institute and the New School’s Actors Studio.
Frank says that PCP was a life changing and affirming 7 weeks. He says “The most memorable memory was sitting in the main cabin and watching an ensemble of children around my age and faculty playing the Schumann piano quintet and being so inspired by the music, the camaraderie, the feeling of unity and the feeling of music history and the present meeting...and deciding ‘I want to live like this going forward.’”
