Neighborhood Strings 10th Anniversary Benefit Concert

Join us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our widely-acclaimed Neighborhood Strings program! Offering free music lessons in violin, viola, and cello to youth from Worcester’s marginalized neighborhoods, Neighborhood Strings provides affordable, high-quality arts education, and fosters family involvement. Young people learn to make music together with musicians and friends from WCMS. In the process, they discover a creative outlet that hones life skills like discipline, cooperation, imagination, and leadership.
