Okemo Young Artist Return to United Church

After a hiatus last summer, the Okemo Young Artists have returned to Ludlow. For the sixth time, they will use the United Church as their concert venue. Eight young string players are included this year: six violinists, a violist, and a cellist. Their ages range from 9 to 14. The size and age range of the groups harkens back to earlier years. Their music is as exciting as we have come to expect throughout the years of their presence in Ludlow.

On Sunday June 24th, three artists play played Bach selections during the Sunday morning service at the United Church of Ludlow. Tess Krope played the Prelude to Partita No. 5; Mira Williams played a selection from the Cello Suite No. 5 adapted for viola; Josh Ben-Dashan and Mira Williams played a part of a concerto for two violins. The congregation experienced wonder and received the presentation most enthusiastically.
The Young Artist will present three public concerts at the United Church of Ludlow at 7:30 PM on Thursdays June 28 and July 5, and Tuesday July 10. They will also be playing in the 10:15 AM Sunday July 1 and 8 worship services.
In appreciation for the gifts of inspiring music and youthful enthusiasm given to us by these amazing young artists, there will be an Ice Cream Social for all in attendance following the July 10 concert. Concerts are free. There is a donation basket for scholarships supporting this program.
Come, be uplifted by wonderful music and inspiring young people.
The United Church is located at the corner of Elm and Pleasant Streets in Ludlow.
