IJ Lobby Lounge: Classical piano training ended up helping teen

By Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal

 This week we shine the Lobby Lounge spotlight on Bella Bromberg, a 16-year-old singer-songwriter from Marin Academy. Accompanying herself on keyboard, Bella sang a highly stylized rendition of George Gershwin’s classic “Summertime” from “Porgy and Bess.” She followed that with an original song, “How I Wish That I Was Wrong.” She wrote “How I Wish That I Was Wrong” in about 10 minutes as a way of venting her anger after a disagreement with someone.
