"Multiply the Music" Campaign 

Center Stage Strings 2015 Benefit Concert

Dear Center Stage Strings Supporter,

Thank you to all who participated in our Multiply the Music campaign. I am thrilled to announce that we have reached our goal of $50,000 and, as promised, I will match it with my recent $50,000 Sphinx Award. Together, this $100,000 enables us to officially announce that we will expand to four weeks long next year!

This is a critical step for us because most serious young music students, and their teachers back at home, expect them to be able to work with the best faculty at various festivals for as long as possible to fill their long summer break. Four weeks makes us all the more attractive for a young artist to attend as their primary destination for the summer.

Although our MTM campaign officially ended on May 1, that doesn't mean that we don't still need your help. They say it takes a village to raise a child- well, to raise a child with a cello it takes a village and also a lot of money! Costly instruments, private lessons, college audition tours and summer camp. At Center Stage we are very aware of these demands and we don't ever turn a deserving student away for financial reasons.

Please consider contributing to CSS in any way that you can and do come and visit us this summer in Three Rivers and see what all the talk is about!

Thank you for your support,
Danielle Belen
Artistic Director

Annual Benefit Concert Big Success
Center Stage Strings Benefit Concert
Our Annual Benefit Concert
, held Friday, May 1, 2015 at the Colburn School, featured Center Stage Strings alumna, violinist Simone Porter. Simone is a rising star in the classical music world, this past year making her debut with the L.A. Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl and already soloing with orchestras around the world. Her performance and that of other CSS Students and Faculty provided the audience with living examples of how CSS is effecting the future of classical music.

We are especially pleased to announce that Simone has agreed to be our Guest Artist at the CSS Summer Music Camp & Festival.  See our Concerts Schedule and purchase your tickets now.
We wish you a lively summer, full of music and gratitude! Thank you for supporting Center Stage Strings.
