We recently held an intense winter music festival in Miami, Florida, where Rob worked as a practice coach with young cellists, and Madi as a violin coach for the violins (the camp is for Violins and Cellos only… coincidentally) — Sandy Marcucci, Mother of bride, Co-Founder and Director of Administration of the Philadelphia International Music Festival
- PIMF: What is your favorite piece of music to play?
- Madi: In general, Baroque music (Vivaldi in particular)... but my favorite piece to play is probably Barber String Quartet.
When Madi first attended Juilliard, Rob once serenaded her (he is also a singer) there under the main steps with a boom box (funny, as Juiliard is filled with wonderful opera singers, so Rob probably sounded horrible to them!) — Sandy Marcucci, Mother of the Bride, and Co Founder and Executive Director of The Philadelphia International Music Festival.
