Thank you to everyone who joined us for two more standout Neighborhood Arts events: Dorchester Stringfest on Saturday, December 2, and Roxbury Stringfest on Sunday, December 3! Students from Bridge Boston & Conservatory Lab Charter Schools took the stage at the Salvation Army Kroc Center in Dorchester with Soul Yatra Trio, featuring Mike Block (cello), Sandeep Das (tabla), & Shaw Pong Liu (violin/erhu). At Hibernian Hall in Roxbury, Boston City-Wide String Orchestra and City Strings United joined the Castle of Our Skins string quartet. Watch our video recap of the Dorchester Stringfest and scroll down to see a few of our favorite moments from both Dorchester and Roxbury.
