Vivaldi Strings Youth Ensemble to Perform March 9 at St. Mark's
The Vivaldi Strings Youth Ensemble will perform in a free concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 9 in the sanctuary of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on Main Street at Hillside Avenue in Glen Ellyn.
The ensemble is a group of about 25 young string performers from the Suzuki Program at the Community School of the Arts at Wheaton College. The Vivaldi Strings’ repertoire includes works of Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven and Shostakovich.
The Vivaldi Strings tour nationally and internationally. They are the sole group representing the United States at the Tianjin International Children’s Music Festival near Beijing, China this summer.
The concert is part of the church’s ongoing music series designed to bring top quality solo musicians and ensembles to Glen Ellyn.

More About St. Mark's Episcopal Church
St. Mark's Episcopal Church originated in 1897, with a simple service attended by 10 worshippers. More than a century later, this Episcopalian parish thrives, and worship services combining prayer, music and scripture are held inside a stone Gothic Revival building built in the early 1950s. As the parish has grown, so has the church. The most recent of several extensions was completed in 2003 and honored with the Traveling Trophy Design Award by the Village of Glen Ellyn. In September 2010, St. Mark's Preschool will open, starting with a three-day program for three- and four-year olds. In addition to the preschool, St. Mark's offers several other programs for children and youth, including nursery care on Sundays and a Parents' Day Out child care program.
