The Benefit Concert, the Youth Program with its Singing, Songwriting and Poetry, Tune learning from our amazing Instructors, Orchestra, tennis and artistic activities, fresh air and French Park, making friends and learning how to play together... Berkshire Summer Strings was a success, a joy and a celebration of music in North Egremont.
Special thanks to the Alford/Egremont Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, to the Town of Egremont and the Volunteer Fire Department for the use of French Park and the firehouse, the Select Board, and the Maintenance Crew for eliminating the bees nest and mowing the grounds while we were NOT rehearsing, to Todd Mack and Music in Common, Inc., to our favorite neighbors: Jenn Brown (for providing moral support and her dry garage) and to Lynda Fisher at the Inn at Sweetwater Farm (for providing a respite for the Poetry Workshop including tea and crumpets and a tour of the gardens), to every parent who supported their child through the week and who provide lessons and encouragement all year long, and to the folks who came out to hear the kids play at our backyard park on an evening blessed with clear skies and good music and peaceful people. From Erika and all the Instructors, Thank You for all the Support!
