The evening will feature string orchestra music by Josef Suk, Mozart, Puccini, as well as fun pops arrangements of music from the movie ‘Frozen’ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.

Hope to see you there!
The May 30th concert for the Senior Singing Strings has been postponed until June 26th, due to the craziness of the month of May! We are looking forward to presenting one last concert before we head to Vienna, and this program will include all the music we are playing in Europe, including:
– all the competition repertoire (Holst, Mozart, Suk and Puccini)
– the WORLD PREMIERE of ‘Give Voice‘, a piece specially written for the Singing Strings by Island composer Richard Covey
– more music by our favourite composers such as Richard Meyer, Bela Bartok
– including some fun pops repertoire as well!
Come support your Singing Strings as they get ready to head to the International Summa Cum Laude music competition in Vienna!
