Letter: Kudos to Roaring Fork Youth Orchestra

There is an extraordinary organization, the Roaring Fork Youth Orchestra, that provides the youth of this valley an opportunity to express themselves and achieve excellence. Their program has three levels of string ensembles to accommodate a broad range of ages, skill levels and locations. Children can study violin, viola, cello and bass. These students rehearse once a week in two locations in the valley.

They recently gave their spring concerts, free to the public. Each group performed, playing with such quality and professionalism. And they touched the hearts of the audience. Their final piece, played by everyone, created such a wonderful, warm sound to make the room vibrate.

If you have children in elementary grades to high school, please consider this wonderful organization for them. Led by Bill Capps, music director; Sarah Graf, Nancy Thomas, Brittani Brown and Ross Kribbs, mentors, all professional musicians, they bring a high level of education to their teaching. For more information, please visit the website: http://www.roaringforkmusicsociety.org.
