String students from all grades will be meeting Wednesday and Thursday to make music together and get to know musicians from across the district. Each grade has been working on pieces to perform at the concert on Thursday night. The finale will be Concerto in D, performed by every string student in the district. Bruce Molsky, a Grammy-nominated fiddle player will be working with students during the week as they learn traditional fiddle tunes. Come and see how Rockport’s strings program has grown!

Tuesday Nov 6 – Molsky’s Mountain Drifters – 7 pm – Shalin Liu Performance Center (free professional concert)
Wednesday Nov 7 – MS Jazz Ensembles – 7 pm – Shalin Liu Performance Center (free)
Thursday Nov 8 – 4th-12th grade Orchestra Summit Concert – 7 pm – John Lane Auditorium (free). Each ensemble has learned a mix of classical tunes and fiddle tunes learned by ear, to be performed this night alongside Bruce Molsky and the Mountain Drifters.
