Mary Jane Santos,
The Delaware County District Library is delighted to be part of a very exciting event in Delaware—the Creative Strings Workshop and Festival. Founded by Ohio native and former Associate Professor at the Berklee College of Music Christian Howes, the Creative Strings Workshop and Festival offers string players from around the world an opportunity to study improvisation, composition, and styles outside the realm of classical music, while bringing Delaware a plethora of talent and musical energy.
Nearly 100 string players from around the world will be led in small ensembles in 20+ performances by world class performing artists. Violins, cellos, violas, and basses will be heard singing and wailing through bluegrass, jazz, rock, Celtic, Latin, blues, avant garde and more. The Library will be hosting four of their concerts during the week of June 30.
On July 2 at the Powell Branch, you will be entertained and awed by these talented students with a performance beginning at 7:00 p.m. Another group of students will be performing at 7:30 p.m. at the Ostrander Branch on the same evening.
The performances are free and open to the public, refreshments will be served, and the group will be selling their CD’s so you can enjoy their talents for a long time to come.
Hope to see you there!
Mary Jane Santos, Director
