In celebration of Father’s Day, the Orchestra teams up with Michael Gardner’s Daddy Dressed Me for a special episode filmed at The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM). Gardner began sewing in 2014 as a way to bond with his nine-year-old daughter, Ava, while looking for a new creative challenge. He created Daddy Dressed Me to help Ava build self-esteem and establish confidence in herself and her abilities.
Principal Bass Harold Robinson, Principal Bassoon Daniel Matsukawa, Principal Horn Jennifer Montone, Associate Principal Trumpet Jeffrey Curnow, and Principal Timpani Don Liuzzi perform upbeat music that sets the scene for a fashion show in the FWM galleries featuring Ava modeling clothing designed by her father, including pieces made with custom fabric designed and screen-printed in FWM’s renowned print studios.
