Mini Concert

One of our student's moms is a musician. She gathered some other musicians (including her daughter) and put together a mini concert for New Hope International School this afternoon. Performances included a string quartet, a piano-cello duet, and some violin solos. Several of our students' parents attended as well.

Besides enjoying the music, the students learned about the relative sizes of the string instruments, and that violin bows are made from horse hair, and violin strings of sheep's gut.

How big is a cello?

Young violinist with a bright future


Violist (had to look that word up)

Can you tell the children enjoyed the music?
