The seventh annual Spring String Fling will begin at 7 p.m. at the South Tahoe High Little Theater. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors, and students 18 and under are free. All proceeds from the concert benefit the Lake Tahoe Unified School District String Music Program.
This concert has become a community favorite for those who enjoy the classical sounds of violins, violas, cellos, and string basses. As always, this concert brings together string orchestras and ensembles from throughout the community. This year’s performance promises to be as delightful as in past years.
Two community groups, the Robinson String Ensemble and the Contradance Ensemble, will perform in the first half. The Robinson Ensemble is an ensemble of 14 students from elementary through high school ages. They will open the concert with the traditional tune, “Turkey in the Straw.” The Contradance Ensemble is a quartet of community members who will play three contradance tunes and will end the first half with the intriguing “Good for the Tongue.”
The 19-member STHS String Orchestra, 40-member STMS String Orchestra, and a group of 25 select students from the elementary string program will each perform individual and combined group pieces throughout the concert. These three groups will be combined to close out the concert in what promises to be exciting fashion given that 84 string players will grace the stage for two numbers, including “Rocky’s Rock.”
