Travel, Music & Teaching: A Conversation With Bella Fontella

Music has been part of Bella Fontella’s life for as long as she can remember. In high school she picked up the flute because she wanted to play something different from the other students she knew who were playing clarinet. She’s taught music and started her own orchestra, before switching careers to allow her to focus on performing.

Bella Fontella joins us to perform a couple songs: Queen Things and an excerpt from a musical she wrote, and talk about her musical journey, including an upcoming performance at the Orange County Public Library’s Melrose in the Mix series.
