Some 28 young musicians, ages 7 to 16, participated in String Camp last week at St. John’s Lutheran Church.

Sponsored by the Salisbury Symphony, the camp had its beginnings in the 1970s. This is the fourth year that the church has hosted the five-day camp.

Camp director Susan Trivette oversaw a staff of three instructors: Carter Bradley of Greensboro and Margaret Rehder and Anne Sellitti, both of Winston-Salem, along with assistants Karen Franks, Carrie Webster and Hunter Safrit. Bradley and Sellitti play with the Salisbury Symphony, while Rehder plays with the Winston-Salem Symphony.

The students gave a closing concert on Friday afternoon, attended by an appreciative audience of parents, grandparents and siblings.
