String Project Concert @ String Project (Ogden: April 22)


On Monday evening April 22, the Weber State University String Project will present its spring concert program.  The String Project students range from third grade beginners through advanced high school players, and are divided into groups according to year and then ability level.  Children from three String Project sites, WSU, Shadow Valley Elementary School, and Odyssey Elementary School, will participate in this program.

Master Teachers Eileen Dempsey and Elissa Krebs oversee the String Project sites.  Working with her are WSU String Music Education students, Serena Bird, Brodie Behrmann, Gabrielle Cox, Joel Daily, Christina Olson and Alyssa Thornley.

The concert will take place at 6:30 in the Austad Auditorium of the Val A. Browning Center for the Performing Arts.  There is no admission charge for the concert but donations will gratefully be accepted.  The public is cordially invited and children 8 and over are welcome.

The String Project is supported by grants from the Weber County Recreation, Arts, Museums and Parks (RAMP), the WSU College of Arts and Humanities, the National String Project Consortium, and Ogden City Arts, as well as donations by friends of the program.  The project is dependent on these donations to keep its student tuition costs low.
