On May 25th, students of the Carroll County String Project performed an afternoon concert for residents and staff of Brightview Westminster Ridge. Musical selections ranged from Bach and Beethoven to Seitz and Weber and featured a variety of instruments, including violin, viola, cello, piano and flute.
After a number of children showcased their solo and duet talents, the program closed with an extended performance by the Wiswakarma Quartet. As it was the Memorial Day weekend, Carroll County String Project's Artistic Director Bagus Wiswakarma, along with daughters Audrey, Aileen and Leilani, wowed the audience with heartwarming renditions of America the Beautiful and Home on the Range, before moving on to other classical selections.
