Salisbury Symphony performs mini concerts

Would you like to learn to play a violin, viola or cello? The Salisbury-Rowan Symphony Society introduced elementary students in Rowan-Salisbury Schools to not only the instruments, but also musicians who play them, and an opportunity to learn to play one themselves.
Due to the generosity of the Salisbury-Rowan Symphony Guild and Wal-Mart, a trio of professional string musicians – Dan Skidmore, concertmaster of the symphony; Faith Alessio on violin; Frank Albert and Morgan Owen, members of the symphony’s viola section; and Anne Sellitti, principal cello of the symphony – visited every Rowan-Salisbury elementary school earlier this month.
Education Director Susan Trivette and Martha West, symphony board member, narrated the short concert and provided information about the Symphony’s After-School Strings program.
For many, if not most, this is the first time they have heard live classical music, and for some of them, it is the beginning of their own careers!
For more information, contact Education Director Susan Trivette at 704-637-4730 or strivett@catawba.edu.
