Orchestra cellist Bob Cafaro visited Canajoharie March 13 performing for and speaking with
elementary and middle school students about music, his career path and education. During his
visit, Mr. Cafaro also performed with student cellists from
Canajoharie's orchestra program. Mr. Cafaro is a 32-year veteran of
Orchestra, which holds a summer residency at the Saratoga Performing
Arts Center each year. Organized by East Hill music teacher Mrs.
Susan Crua, each year SPAC performers and educators visit
Canajoharie through the center’s Classical Kids Program. Students
this summer will also be able to see the orchestra perform a score
from the movie “E.T.” thanks to free tickets provided by the
Classical Kids Program for all Canajoharie fifth and sixth graders.
Each year the program also provides free SPAC lawn passes to see
