National String Project Consortium 20th Anniversary
The National String Project Consortium celebrates its 20th anniversary with a newly commisioned work by Balmages and a virtual performance.
The National String Project Consortium (NSPC) is a non-profit organization (501(c)(3)) which implements new and supports existing String Project sites across the country. String Project sites provide public school children the opportunity to learn to play stringed instruments.
As a part of its 20th anniversary celebration, NSPC seeks to engage students and teachers from the 42 String Projects across the country in a virtual recorded performance of a work commissioned for this event. To promote collaboration and celebrate the successes of our students’ string education, NSPC will create an opportunity for our students to perform a piece specifically written for String Project students. Brian Balmages, a renowned educational orchestral composer, has accepted our offer to compose a piece that incorporates multi-levels of players. Because String Project sites have beginning to advanced stringed instrument players, Balmages’ composition will provide an opportunity for all students to participate
