Carson City Symphony’s Strings in the Summer, directed by Sue Jesch, is getting underway this month with weekly sessions planned for area students.
The program is open to all and includes classes at two levels of music experience. Tuition is free; donations are welcome.
Introduction to Fiddle and Folk Music, primarily for younger students and violinists, violists and cellists of any age who have limited experience, is from 10 to 11 a.m. Mondays, June 20 and 27 and July 11, 18 and 25 at the Studio of Sue Jesch. The studio is at 357 Fairview Drive, across from Lowe’s and above Dog-Eared Books. Participants must be able to play a one-octave D scale and read notes within the staff.
String Ensemble is for advanced beginner to intermediate violin, viola, cello, and bass players of all ages who want to play fun tunes arranged for string orchestra. Sessions will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Wednesdays, June 22 and 29 and July 6, 13 and 20 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Family Church, 1201 N. Saliman Road.
All participants in Strings in the Summer will be invited to perform in a public concert, time and place to be determined, at the end of July.
Strings in the Summer is supported, in part, by public funds through grants from the Nevada Arts Council, Partnership Carson City, Terry Lee Wells Foundation, Soroptimist International of Carson City, and by private donations.
