The Frank R. Bodor Strings of Joy

Strings of Joy Students

The Warren Philharmonic Orchestra, with the help of private donors and the Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber of Commerce, is giving free string lessons to Trumbull County students. Each student, from grades 3-7, is carefully selected through an application process and is loaned a free violin or cello to use. Since we began the program in 2015, the Strings of Joy students have appeared as soloists with the Warren Philharmonic Orchestra in two world premieres created especially for them by Pulitzer Prize winning composer Yehudi Wyner. Provided the WPO can obtain more funding and donations, we very much hope to continue the program in the fall.
