Students are gearing up for the SummerStrings! RockFest on Wednesday, July 26, at 7:30 p.m. at The Space at Westbury Theater.
SummerStrings! gives North Shore orchestral students in elementary, middle and high school the chance to explore non-traditional music styles. String students collaborate with teachers and a professional rock band to present a full-scale concert. This year’s guest artists are Roger Street Friedman and his band, and Jason Liebman. Friedman’s second album, Shoot the Moon, was released in January and is receiving rave reviews. Liebman is an accomplished guitarist, vocalist and songwriter.
SummerStrings! started in 2013 with just two kids. This year there are 85. Find concert videos and program information at www.seacliffmusic.com/summerstringsrockfest.
