Twelve Kentucky Center ArtsReach violin students will travel to Washington, DC on March 28th with instructor Mr. Keith Cook and several chaperones.
The group was invited by Congressman John Yarmuth's office to visit the Capitol. They will also tour the Frederick Douglas historic site. Douglas, a leader of the abolitionist movement, was also a violinist.
On Saturday March 29th, the students will meet with two other youth violin groups and members of the US Air Force Strings (AIM Outreach Program). They will rehearse together, enjoy a luncheon, and play several selections. The trip will conclude with a performance on Sunday at the historic Chapel of the Atonement.
