Rocky Mountain Strings Perform with Suzuki Strings in Cedar City

Rocky Mountain Strings, a performing group based in Salt Lake City, came to Southern Utah and performed with the Suzuki Strings on April 25th, 2019. It was a delightful evening with impressive artistry and musicianship shown in each selection.

The evening began with the Mack Wilberg arrangement of Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing featuring the local Red Rock Singers and the guests playing the 2-part violin accompaniment arranged by Michael McLean. Steve Meredith directed the ensemble.
