Marywood University Hosting String Project Holiday Gala Concert

Marywood University’s String Project will present its Holiday Gala Concert on Thursday, December 7, at 5 p.m. The performance will take place in the Munley Theatre at the Sette LaVerghetta Center for Performing Arts, and the concert is free and open to the public.

Approximately 125 students enroll in Marywood’s String Project each year. Marywood is one of several universities across the U.S. participating in the National String Project Consortium (NSPC). The NSPC is dedicated to increasing the number of children playing stringed instruments, and addressing the critical shortage of string teachers in the U.S.

The Marywood University String Project is grateful for support from: The Laurence Myer Davidow Memorial Fund, The Schwartz Mack Foundation, and The Anne Therese Kenny Flanagan Endowment.
