An Affordable Means of Expression

As many of you know Bob Arsenault is a passionate guy. He is chair of the Performing Arts Department at Mount Hope High School. Some of you may have read in the local Phoenix newspaper last spring that he was starting up a new after school string instrument program (with a former student) for community elementary school age children to learn string instruments for free. The group calling themselves the Community String Project received money from the Kickemuit Education Foundation for 12 violins as well as grant money from RWU and other sources. The purpose of the project is to make music education more accessible and instruction affordable. The group has 30 students now and is planning to open up registration for adults and high school students in the fall adding another 30 students. Further details will be forthcoming but for the moment please know that you are invited to their first recital next week at Hugh Cole School in Warren.
