4:00 - 4:40 pm, lower shelter house
Children will experience a live violin concert by children! Kids will be introduced to the regional music education group Strings, an organization dedicated to professional personalized violin instruction. They will also have the opportunity to hold and handle musical instruments.
Strings, Inc., the only organized string music education program in the region, is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to providing professional personalized violin instruction for students. Although located primarily in the Jasper-Ferdinand area, during its history Strings, Inc., has served students from Dubois, Spencer, Orange, Pike, Daviess, Gibson, Martin and Crawford counties. The organization was formed in part because local school districts in these counties do not offer formal orchestral, stringed instrument instruction in their schools. Using the Suzuki method of instruction, the program helps children learn how to read notes. The philosophy, recognized and used worldwide as a great tool for the training of the arts, is designed to develop concentration, awareness, and attention in student’s growing appreciation for the art of music.
