KENNEBUNK – Community string ensemble “No Strings Attached” invites local violin, viola, cello and bass players to fiddle away the winter chill with its winter session starting Thursday, January 17.

No Strings Attached is an informal orchestral ensemble for those who love playing great music simply for the joy of it. Repertoire ranges from medium easy to medium advanced. Members include recent beginners and those who played earlier in life and are rediscovering the fun of playing together, to lifelong dedicated amateurs and a few pros.

“Music for this session is inspired by the outdoor world of winter, " says No Strings Attached Director Pamela Doughty. “We have a mix of calm and meditative pieces, as well as pieces that celebrate the increase in daylight that starts to be noticeable about the beginning of March.”

The group meets on Thursday evenings two to three times a month at Christ Church, 6 Dane Street in Kennebunk. Interested string players are welcome to try the group for an evening before joining.

For more information or to register please contact Pamela Doughty, by email pdoughty74@gmail.com, or call (207) 232-9778.
