|Strings Music Festival Guild 1990|
“I remember the first Guild. I was there when we coined ‘Noteworthy Affairs.’”
My favorite memory of Strings is… “the many years I volunteered for Strings and my years with the Guild. I have many wonderful music friends and memories from those days.” -Ann Perry
The Guild of Strings Music Festival has been around almost as long as the festival itself. The Guild began in 1990 and was started by Gloria Smith, Molly Cox, Criss Fetcher, Lynn Greco, Ja Hanson, and Carol Ryan. Nine of the original Guild members are still involved with Strings today. Back then their goal was to organize and help Strings with fundraising events.
And they are still at it today. This year, they raised $25,000 for Strings Music Festival through events such as the Kitchen and Garden Tour and the Silent Auction. They are also a critical part of our concerts, providing leadership for the other community volunteers. To get involved with the Guild, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
