1 music city strings Music City Strings is a community of students, teachers, and parents who believe in the importance of an enriched and thorough music education. In 2005, Dana Meyer, International concert violinist and violist, established Music City Strings in Franklin, Tennessee. Her dream was to create a program that would provide children the means to become confident, sensitive and beautiful artists. As her studio demands grew she invited Frank Auer, a violinist and teacher from Franklin, to be a co-director of the program. Today, that program consists of 45 young students in violin and viola, ranging from beginner to advanced levels. Ages range from four to eighteen years old, with many siblings, parents, and grandparents participating in everyday scheduled events. Central to the Music City Strings program is the philosophy founded by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki: that music has the power to improve the human spirit, open the heart, and make finer human beings of all those it touches. Music City Strings strives to enrich the community by bringing music and culture to different venues throughout the State. Students of Music City Strings have performed all over Tennessee, and many have traveled across the United States to study at Suzuki Institutes and workshops. Since the year of its inception, students from Music City Strings have been Young Artist Achievement Award winners through the National Association of Music Teachers competitions, winners of the Nashville Symphony Thor Scholarship, Middle Tennessee Suzuki Association scholarship recipients, and first place State winners in the Tennessee Music Teachers Association program. The benchmark performance of Music City Strings was their appearance in the International Ensembles concert at the Suzuki Association of the Americas Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in May of They were one of only three studios chosen in North and South America and the first studio ever invited from the South! They astounded an audience of 2,000. Because of this amazing performance, Music City Strings was discovered by The League of Astonishing Strings and has been invited on a concert tour of Europe during the summer of MUSIC CITY STRINGS

2 the tour taking music city around the world Because of their amazing performance at the International Ensembles Concert in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in May of 2012, Music City Strings was discovered by The League of Astonishing Strings and has been invited on a performing tour of Europe during the summer of The League of Astonishing Strings is a group that seeks to partner with only the most outstanding student groups in North America. Music City Strings is one of only three youth string ensembles in the nation invited to be a part of this tour and has been asked to represent the culture and music of Tennessee on the stages of Spain, France, England and Scotland. why a tour? The best way to help students gain new perspectives and build skills for the future is through experiential learning. Obviously, there are benefits to educational travel. Students who travel are immersed in foreign languages, become inspired by new and exciting experiences abroad, and encounter historical landmarks and world geography firsthand. For the students of Music City Strings, the opportunity to connect with people of another culture through the universal language of music is truly a unique educational experience. These students will be engaging audiences all over Europe, and will be collaborating with other young and talented ensembles as well. The process of preparing a musical tour program of this magnitude requires discipline, dedication, and hard work. The experience of performing on tour broadens the student musician in a way that nothing else can and gives that student an opportunity to share their passion and joy for music in a different cultural context. Our heart s desire for every one of these precious students is that they will be able to take part in this life changing opportunity! To make that happen, we need your financial support so that every child can go on this tour. Please partner with us and make Music City Strings the pride of Nashville and of the great state of Tennessee! details: Performances: 11 Dates of Tour: July 15th July 31st, 2015 Locales: Spain, France, England, and Scotland Core Group: 30 Students, 2 Directors, 3 Band Members for Accompaniment Expenses: $3,500 per individual (all transportation, meals, stay included) Initial Fundraising Goal*: $122,500 *Due to the age range of the students in Music City Strings, we need more chaperones and guardians than other groups typically require.
