The Moab String Program will hold its end-of-the-year spring recital on Thursday, May 1 at 7 p.m. at Helen M. Knight Elementary School, 505 N. MiVida Dr.

The recital is free of charge and the public is invited to attend.

The student musicians, who represent a wide variety of ages, will perform as members of the BEACON (Building Essential Assets through Community Outreach and Networking) Moab Strings Program. During the recital, students from grades two through 10 will perform, according to Nanci Flesher, the strings program director.

The program will include solo performances, duets, group and string orchestra performances of folk songs, fiddle tunes, movie songs and classical pieces.  

“The recital will include an incredible variety of musical pieces [and] will also include an audience sing-along, and will be tremendous fun,” Flesher said in a news release. “Don’t miss these extraordinary performances, and come support the newest, most talented young musicians in Moab!”
