String camp teaches young musicians in small groups
The Hastings String Academy 2010 held its finale concert Friday evening. The concert was a collection of songs performed by string quartets and one string quintet.
The musicians, all between grades six and nine, only had one week of "string camp," as they call it, to rehearse their songs together. But the biggest challenge they faced was having to carry their parts alone.
"You're the only one with your part," the camp's co-founder, Mary Ellen Fox, said.
