Winter strings


The All-Island String Orchestra performed its winter concert last Thursday, Dec. 6, at the Performing Arts Center. The concert featured 142 enthusiastic and experienced string students from all of the Island elementary schools. Highlights included an orchestral arrangement from Haydn’s “Quartet Op. 33, No. 3, ‘The Bird’” and Richard Meyer’s “Joust,” along with some more seasonal numbers. The students are under the direction of string instructors Nancy Jephcote, Chelsea Pennebaker, and Rebecca Laird, with accompaniment provided by program assistant Carol Loud.
