Bala Cynwyd Middle School Hosts String Move Up Night
Bala Cynwyd Middle School Hosts String Move Up Night

It was an evening of beautiful music, when the Bala Cynwyd Middle School Music Department hosted String Move Up Night on June 6, 2019.

240 student musicians participated, as students who play string instruments had an opportunity to meet and collaborate with their peers from different schools.

Elementary string musicians from Cynwyd, Penn Wynne and Merion, middle school musicians from Bala Cynwyd and high school musicians from Lower Merion each performed one selection from their spring concerts.

The evening culminated when all the musicians played a combined piece called "Viking."

This is the second year that BCMS has hosted String Move Up Night, which, by all accounts, was a big success.

One parent commented, "That was truly a 'Wow!' event. As I looked around the room, with the children in 'surround-sound,' and clearly being themselves in their t-shirts, enjoying their music, I thought that this is what this district and public school are about. The commitment to music education was palpable."
