Zin zin zin! Music surrounds us even when we’re not listening. March is Music Month at Roddenbery Memorial Library in Cairo, Georgia. As you enter the Children’s room you will be surrounded by stories about music, composers and performers. If you listen carefully you might hear the sounds of violins wafting from the auditorium where a group of students are learning how to make their violins speak.
This dedicated group is taught by Lincoln High School senior Samantha Crawford from Tallahassee. Ms. Crawford has been studying the violin since the age of nine and has performed internationally, receiving many accolades.
The Grady County Fine Arts Project, Inc. is responsible for creating this amazing opportunity for local music enthusiasts. Combining a multitude of talents the GCFAPI has been reaching out to the Grady County community for the past seven years providing piano lessons, children’s choir and storytelling which includes reading and writing skills through puppetry. These are just a few of the tremendous opportunities provided by the Grady County Fine Arts Project, Inc. Each of these endeavors instill confidence, tenacity, a sense of responsibility and pride. The participants acquire a much wider view of the world in addition to strengthening important skills and values they will use throughout their lives. Members of the community have enjoyed performances by these special groups.
We are honored to provide a venue for these fine arts opportunities and look forward to welcoming more fine arts classes to the Roddenbery Memorial Library. RML has just started circulating ukuleles and we are looking forward to some exciting jam sessions.
