The Philharmonia Celebrates 70 Years: Pierrette Galeone & Emily Davis (violins)
Pierrette Duncan, née Galeone, played in the 1st and 2nd Violin sections of the Philharmonia Orchestra starting in the 1950s and spent 30 years as a member of the Orchestra. Our current No. 2, 2nd Violin, Emily Davis, met Pierrette in her home to learn what life was like for the Philharmonia's early members, and especially for women.
