Are you working on a concerto by Bach, Corelli, Vivaldi or any other composers who wrote for a solo instrument accompanied by strings? Imagine playing a movement of your concerto in a concert, with the Senior Singing Strings as your accompanying orchestra!
An accomplished panel of judges (TBA) will be listening to all the entries and picking our performers on February 4th.
Attached are PDF and Word versions of both the application form and the Concerto Competition information form.

Hi all –
I am looking for some parent volunteers to man a table to sell Singing Strings CDs during the PEI Craft Council Christmas Craft Fair this weekend – the hours are:
Saturday 10am – 5pm
Sunday 12pm – 5pm
We have some Senior students who are willing to play Christmas carols during some of those times but I would love to have one or two older students or parents who are willing to sit at the table and sell CDs. We have 300 to sell and they make great Christmas gifts!!
