Jason Riesenberger, String Bass
I have many great memories of the Harbor Junior High instrumental music program (as well as being a member of the stage crew) from my time there and, in retrospect, realize that the foundation provided to all of us was extraordinary (especially for the Junior High level) for its sheer quality and depth. Those who chose to pursue a profession in music certainly left Harbor JHS well-equipped to meet their subsequent challenges. Although I ultimately settled into a decidedly non-musical career in banking/computer systems and have not played a bass in over 30 years, enjoyment of music remains high among my many interests. My ability to seriously listen to and genuinely appreciate, a wide range of live and recorded music continues to grow now and is undoubtedly due in large part to what I learned all those years ago.
