This week’s C.A. House Strings of the Week: the Harding Middle Strings Orchestra!
They currently have about 85 students in the program which includes violin, viola, cello, and bass.
Since Instructor Catherine Baker took over the program last year, the numbers have doubled and they are expecting more students to joins next year!
“It’s just a very supportive environment,” Baker said. “Our administration has been nothing but encouraging, so it’s a great string program to work for.”
Their next concert is coming up on December 6th in their auditorium. They also will be doing their spring concert next semester.
About half of their students participate in the honors orchestra concert at Wheeling Park High School.
