All students entering the third grade in the fall have the opportunity to register to play a string instrument in the the Darien Public Schools string program, the music department has announced. The registration evening, otherwise known as “Introduction to Strings Night,” will take place on Wednesday, June 6, at 7 p.m. in the Middlesex Middle School auditorium.

The students and parents will get an overview of the school string program and will get an opportunity to hear and try each instrument so that they can make a decision as to which instrument they would prefer to study in the fall program. Parents will also receive registration materials and information on instrument rental programs.

If you have any questions about any aspect of the elementary string program, contact your school string teachers, Dawn Hanley:; Dylan Spielvogel: or Jane Minnis: or 203-655-3981, ext: 2287.
