“Strings in the Summer,” Carson City Symphony’s summer program for string players of all ages, will present a concert 10 a.m. Aug. 9 at the Carson Mall Shopping Center, 1313 S. Carson St. in Carson City. Admission is free.

Performers, directed by Sue Kitts, are from Carson City, Dayton, Incline Village and Douglas County and range from elementary school students through adults. They will play a selection of their favorite classical, folk and fiddle tunes.

“Strings in the Summer” is an extension of Carson City Symphony’s “Strings in the Schools” program. It is funded in part by grants from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; Carson City; the Sierra Philharmonic League; and private donations.
