Sunday, Nov. 14, 3 pm
Commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the UMass Lowell String Project as everyone proudly reflects on the accomplishments of the String Kids and the continued growth of the organization. Special guests will be the Harlem Quartet, a group of innovative and highly engaging young Black and Latino musical stars. Also performing will be members of the Lowell Youth Orchestra and New England Orchestra.
The UML String Project offers string training to Lowell Public School students, targeting diverse, underserved neighborhoods. Students are taught violin, viola and cello by UML music majors, distinguished professors and guest artists. Creative Sound Play (CSP) introduces participants to music technology, improvisation, composition and music from different cultures. A one-month Summer String Camp offers intensive sessions with individualized training and ensemble experience as well as CSP classes.
There will be a VIP reception immediately following the concert. Reservations are $100 per person for the concety and reception; $30 for the concert only. (A portion of the admission fee is tax-deductible.)
Performance at Durgin Hall, UMass Lowell South Campus, 35 Wilder Street; Reception at Allen House. For more information, contact Jacqueline_Ledoux@uml.edu or buy tickets online
