Strings for Success’ annual Summer Prelude concerts are a very important source of funding for our violin program, which serves more than 100 students in grades 3-8 in the Rochester City School District. Our special evening this year starts with a dessert reception and silent auction and continues with a wonderful evening of music. We are honored once again to have WXXI’s Julia Figueras as our emcee. We are also delighted to be joined by cellist Benjamin Doane, jazz guitarist Bob Sneider and friends, the Mount Olivet Gospel Choir, and the students of Strings for Success. Please join us both for a very special night of music and to support a very worthy cause.
