on June 12, 2017

Recently, the WVCSD music department held its 19th annual “String Fling” concert, marking the 19th year the orchestra program has been in existence in the Warwick Schools. 391 orchestra students from grades 4-12 participated in this impressive undertaking, which has every string musician in the school district performing together under one roof!

Thanks to the talented students, their supportive parents, and the dedicated music teachers who worked beautifully together to make this amazing concert happen:

  • The 4th Grade Orchestra & PIE Gr. 5 orchestra students, directed by Tammy Moser. 
  • The 5th Grade and 6th Grade Orchestras & the Wire Choir, directed by Elissa Maynard
  • The 7th Grade and 8th Grade Orchestras, directed by Christy Brown
  • The High School Symphony Orchestra & High School Chamber Strings, directed by Keely Gould Blaikner

The final piece of the evening, “What is Love,” was performed by all WVCSD Orchestra students. The pop piece was arranged by WVCSD Orchestra alumni Nicole Bartolotta six years ago for her Senior Project.
