On April 13, 2019, string students and teachers gathered at IUP for a day of string solos and chamber music at the IUP String Chamber Music Festival.
The Festival joined together students from Indiana High School, IUP music students, and IUP String Project teachers. Clinicians for the Festival included Linda
Jennings, IUP cello faculty; Emily Rolka, director of Suzuki Talent Education at Sides in Williamsport and adjunct faculty at Lycoming College; and Colleen Ferguson, IUP violin/viola faculty and Festival director.
Students performed string solos, duos, trios, and quartets. The day culminated in a public performance for teachers, friends, and family.
