Golden Strolling StringsOrganized by Mrs. Christine Loverti in 1988, the North Allegheny Golden Strolling Strings is a co-curricular activity that involves all string orchestra students in grades 9-12. Musicians of all levels join together to perform music of many styles, including classical, folk, popular, seasonal, and dance. Season highlights always include Pachelbel's "Canon in D," "Can Can" from Orpheus and the Underworld, and “Over the Rainbow.”
Now under the direction of Sarah Lavelle and Roger Whisler, the Golden Strolling Strings have been invited to perform for conventions, banquets, church dinners, weddings, and other school and community functions. The Golden Strolling Strings continue to receive appreciative responses from the community. It has become a major fundraising activity and supports the students as they travel each year. More importantly, strolling while performing has brought these students to a new level of self-confidence, musical leadership and performance security. It also provides each player with an experience of communicating directly with an audience through music.
