The University’s String Project will hold its Holiday Gala Concert on Thursday, December 13, 2018, at 6:30 p.m., in the Sette LaVerghetta Center for Performing Arts. The performance is free and open to the public.

Marywood University’s String Project is an after-school, pre-collegiate string program for students ages 7-18. Participants take small-group lessons in violin, viola, cello, and double bass; participate in orchestra; and perform in concerts according to their experience level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced).

More than 120 students enroll in Marywood’s String Project each year. Marywood is one of several universities across the United States that participates in the National string Project Consortium (NSPC). The NSPC is dedicated to increasing the number of children playing stringed instruments, and addressing the critical shortage of string teachers in the U.S. Marywood’s String Project has recently opened two satellite programs at Nativity Miguel School and All Saints String Project.
