Ginger Greer's strings classes were visited recently by author Kimberly Cross Teter, who wrote Isabella's Libretto, a young adult historical fiction novel set in Venice, Italy in 1715.

The book focuses on a Venetian orchestra directed by Antonio Vivaldi consisting entirely of females, most of whom had been orphaned or abandoned as infants.

Teter spoke with students about the history behind her story as they learned more about the role music has played in the past.
