Symphony plans mini-concerts for elementary students

Salisbury Sumphony

SALISBURY — Continuing an annual tradition of service to the community, the Salisbury Symphony has scheduled a series of “miniconcert” performances by a trio of classical musicians for students at each of the twenty elementary schools in Rowan-Salisbury Schools.

Symphony Education Director Beth Cook says that these performances “not only introduce young students to musical instruments like violins, violas and cellos, but also to some of the real musicians who play them.” Performers will explain the music that they are playing and demonstrate some of the techniques that they use in playing their particular instruments.

These performances, to take place from Sept. 17 through 28, are made possible through a grant from the North Carolina Arts Council and the generosity of donors from the local community. This year’s performances will feature the following musicians Sarah Womack, assistant concertmaster of the Symphony, on violin; Carter Bradley, a member of the Symphony’s viola section and Gayle Masarie, a member of the cello section.

This exciting program will be the first time that many students have heard live classical music, and for some of them, it may inspire them to pursue music professionally. Students will also learn about the Symphony’s “After School Strings” program, which prepares students for a lifelong appreciation of classical music.
