Taconic Music's Youth programs blossom into spring


MANCHESTER — Now in its third year, Taconic Music's growing Strings for Kids program will present its winter recital at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 17, at Zion Episcopal Church in Manchester.

Violin, viola and cello students of Deanna Baasch, Vesela French, Joana Genova, Cami Sylvia, and Jared Shapiro, will show off what they have learned over the past term. Strings for Kids, which is currently accepting new students for its spring term, offers music instruction in violin, viola and cello for ages 5-18.

In addition to private music lessons, TM offers students who can read music the opportunity to participate in the Taconic Junior Ensemble. Directed by cellist Karen Svirsky and violinist Joana Genova, the ensemble, which began in the fall of 2018, rehearses on Mondays from 5:30 to 6:30pm at Zion Episcopal Church.

The spring term begins March 25 and consists of seven regular rehearsals and a public performance.

Financial assistance is available to families that cannot afford the full tuition. More information about Strings for Kids and the Taconic Junior Ensemble can be found at taconicmusic.org or by contacting Joana Genova at directors @taconicmusic.org.
