The summer programs of the Delta Community Music School have had significant success this year, with a full jazz camp in July under the direction of school director Stephen Robb, and Thrive City junior and senior string boot camps this month.
The senior string camp bravely took on the challenge of being tuitionfree for the first time, in order to allow talented and hard-working young people opportunities they might not have otherwise. The results of this hard work will be showcased for the South Delta community this Friday, Aug. 18, at 6 p.m. at All Saints Anglican Church, 4755 Arthur Drive. Admission is by donation.
Musical selections will include beloved classics such as La Bamba, Stormy Weather, and Edvard Grieg's Holberg Suite. The always-entertaining trio of Infinitus (John Littlejohn, Anthony Cheung, Alex Cheung) will be leading this fine group of aspiring musicians. Many individuals have chosen to support this effort, in addition to the sponsorship of the DCMS, and the final concert promises to be an evening for music-lovers.
