Strings Opening Week kicked off with three sold out concerts and over 4,000 people enjoying the show in the Strings Music Pavilion. Here are some of our favorite moments:
You know the concert is going to be good when the crowd gives a standing ovation before the band has even played a note. What a way to kick off Strings 24th season with Jazz at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis as opening night.
|July 1 ~ Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis|
|July 5 ~ Peter Davison|
We love when the kids get a chance to be on stage. Here they are with Peter Davison learning how to spin plates.
|July 6 ~ Donors Prelude|
All of our 2011 Donors enjoying their reception at the Strings Café tent outside the Pavilion. A huge “Thank You!” from all of us at Strings. Because of you it’s all possible!
A wild Opening Night Orchestra concert complete with Andrés’ flying hair, energetic bow strikes and applause that brought down the house.
|July 8 ~ Opening Night Orchestra|
|July 9 ~ Dala|
The Dala girls’ smiles alone were enough to light up the stage, not to mention their gorgeous melodic voices and talented guitar and piano playing.
