Holyoke Summer Strings STILL believes that an Arts Education is a right of the people.  This year we will be continuing to offer FREE Violin and Cello Lessons to Students of the Holyoke Public Schools, FREE use of an Instrument, Yoga, Art, Improvisation, Chorus, Creative Speech/Writing, and we will be introducing Dance as well!  However, we need your support to make this happen!  Anything you can contribute will help to make young people in Holyoke, MA and surrounding areas explore the joys of playing a String Instrument, find peace in Downward Dog, feel the power of their voice in Chorus and Creative Speech/Writing, find their happy feet through Dance, and spontaneously express their hearts via Improvisation!  

We will also continue to share our gifts to the community through weekly performances throughout the Community and Field Trips....

But it all depends on you and what you want to for you Holyoke Summer Strings!  Consider giving to us today!

We are already close to finishing our first week in our second session! 40 wonderful K-5 students have been learning Dance, Violin, Cello, Guitar (courtesy of Happy Valley Guitar Orchestra), Chorus, and Visual Art! People who visit, see a performance, or join our faculty always comment on how this Program, Holyoke Summer Strings is one of a kind in Wmass and always give their praises. I think they may be right too...
The biggest part of this is finding however, and we are so lucky to have community who value this unique and unheard of WMass Program, and we have almost reached our revised budget goal for this year!
We only need 300 more dollars!!!!
That said, please share, donate, and talk about us if you know us :). We want to go bigger next year, curriculum big!

Here is a photo from our Middle School Session's final concert last week at City Hall! Aren't they amazing?
