Final Concert

Come join us for our Spring Concert!

We have worked hard all year to perfect our skills on our instruments and now we would like to share our music with you. Various levels of violins, violas, cellos, and flute will each present their best pieces.

Twinkle Celebration

Every February we take time to celebrate the progress our youngest violinists are making. When each one reaches the middle of book 1 and can play “Perpetual Motion” they are invited to perform their polished Twinkles.

The group performs all the Twinkle Variations and Theme and then are presented with a certificate which lists all 25 skills they acquired in learning the Twinkles.

Thank-you to Nancy Morgan, Peggy Swartz, and Dorli McWayne who led the violin/violists, cellists, and flutes.
