A roomful of excited second grade students were introduced to the instruments of the string family by Allegro Strings, under the direction of Beth Joy Fowler. Allegro Strings performed a program of traditional and Celtic music which included music and dancing. Porter Ridge High School Band also performed under the direction of Ian Faires, along with Porter Ridge Eighth Grade Band directed by Stephanie Tomberlin. We would like to thank Porter Ridge High School for the hospitality and are pleased to be an affiliated program of Union County Public Schools.
