Bassist Man Wai Che, a graduate of the Juilliard School and Stony Brook University, visited Port Jefferson elementary, middle and high school music students on April 8 for a string bass performance and workshop. Che performed works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Fritz Kreisler, Camille Saint-Saens and John Williams as well as a traditional Chinese song titled "Horse Race." 

“The students were in awe of his ability and had many insightful questions regarding his playing techniques,” said Port Jefferson orchestra teacher Vanessa Salzman.

Che, who has been playing bass for 16 years, spoke with the students about his passion for performing and sharing his music with others.
