Thanks for great program
On behalf of the entire Corvallis community, I would like to thank Martha Ilgenfritz, Don Harmsworth, and the entire staff of the Corvallis After School Strings Program. I have had the pleasure of watching this great program grow over the past several years.
The quality of the music played at the mid-winter recital was great. Our community loves watching all of the children play their hearts out. But even more exciting is watching the children enjoy themselves so much. Our instructors have instilled in the children a love for music and performing that will serve them well later in life. I doubt many of them will ‘go pro' in music, or even garner a college scholarship, but, all of them will benefit from the life lessons learned from playing difficult instruments, taking instructions, and being comfortable performing in public.
Finally, job well done by all in the Corvallis After School Strings Program!
