by | Mar 30, 2015

DSC_1486On Wednesday, March 25, Brendan Carnieaux, Megan Catelli and Leslie Lee hosted the fourth annual Spring String Fling at East Greenwich High School. Over 200 orchestra students gathered to rehearse and perform together.

“It was truly a great night of camaraderie for our string orchestras, teachers, and students,” said Lee. “The annual Spring String Fling is a wonderful way to showcase our ever-growing string program here in East Greenwich!”

“The Spring String Fling allows our beginning string players a chance to play with the older, more advanced string students. It gives our new musicians something to look forward too!” said Lee.
