String Festival in Cedar City

At our annual Southern Utah String Festival in Cedar City, Utah over 200 students perform two memorized pieces and receive written comments. This is a community event and it takes the families, teachers, pianists, judges and organizers to make it happen. The String Festival is organized by SAA member Marin Colby and several other SAA teachers assist. This is just one of the participants in one session. We also have a piano festival and an orchestra festival.
