The String Academy

A very special academy opened it's doors in our town this summer. A visiting accomplished violin player who played in our Chamber Music Series just a few years ago, fell in love with our town and dreampt of starting a summer string academy here. To make a long story short, our town embraced the idea and offered scholarships, accommodations and practice venues.

This week we were proud to house seven talented musicians from around the world.
LtoR Leonel-USA, Lily Lu-China, Brennen-USA, Erin-USA, Sara-China, Max-Peru, and Fagner-Brazil
We attended their final performance last evening and it was amazing. For more information and applicant information go 


  1. Dearest Janey,
    Oh you bet that was an amazing experience!
    The son of our friends in Florida will go to Germany and perform for free for several months but what an experience that is for young people!

  2. That sounds like a wonderful idea!

  3. What an inspiration for young musicians.

  4. What a great experience for everybody.
