Strings in Concert

On Saturday 2nd September our group of violinists (plus one viola player) performed their first concert of the year in the church. This was their first concert since Jesus, pictured centre, took over much of the responsibility of teaching the group. He is our top violin student and continues his studies with the top violin teacher in Paraguay in Asuncion every week with the help of a SMEF scholarship. Since the beginning of this year he has done the bulk of the teaching of the strings group in Santa Maria, with a professional teacher coming only once a month to guide, and the concert proved what an excellent job he is doing!
