I am excited to be coaching the USCHAP’s advanced string ensemble, Vivace Strings, this year. They are a talented group of musicians and a lot of fun to work with. The group currently consists of nine players who also play with the USYO. Vivace Strings has several upcoming performances, culminating in a performance at the USYO winter concert. Other performances this year will be at the Union Symphony League’s “Tea and Tables”, the UCCAC’s (Union County Community Arts Council’s) “Breakfast For the Arts”, the Downtown Art Walk, the Union Symphony League’s “Dream Home Open House” and at the Waxhaw Woman’s Club concert.
