Downtown Cloverdale will be filled with the sweet sounds of classical music Thursday afternoon, as Classics on Main brings the concert hall to the street corner.
The performers are from the ninth annual Reformed String Camp, a summer music camp for youth taking place this week (July 6-11) in Cloverdale at the Canadian Reformed Church.
The camp, an annual event since 2007, alternates between B.C. and Ontario and draws about 60 participants from across the country.
The musicians are at all skill levels, from beginner to advanced, for a busy week of learning, rehearsing, mentoring and performing orchestral music for strings – violins, violas, cellos, and basses.
Performances are from 2-3:30 p.m. outside the following locations: Cloverdale Pharmasave, the Cloverdale Library, Malary’s Fashion Network, the Rustic Rooster Cafe, and Elena’s Country Kitchen.
The camp focuses on orchestra music for strings as well as traditional music.
