A Community String Orchestra for all ages and skills
The Summer A.C. Strings Orchestra meets every Monday evening in the summer at the Abiding Christ Lutheran Church in Fairborn, Ohio. This is a community orchestra that welcomes players of all ages and multiple skill levels.
There are three levels of participation. The beginner level is for beginner note readers and meets from 6:00-6:45. The intermediate and advanced reader levels meet from 6:00-8:30. As an extra bonus, the A.C. Strings combine with the Fairborn Civic Band to perform as the Fairborn Philharmonic Orchestra.
The summer string program culminates in two concerts. The first is a brief concert at the Fairborn Corn Festival, and the second is a full concert at the Abiding Christ Lutheran Church. The 2017 schedule begins on June 5 and concludes on August 26.
The directors are Kathy Johnston (who founded the String Orchestra in 1997, and has taught many successful violin and 'cello players for over 30 years) and Phillipa Burgess (who teaches violin and piano, as well as music at Sinclair Community College)
