Night of fun filled traditional fiddle folk music had some great moments and really great music provided by The Mona Shores Middle Fiddlers, Mona Shores Fiddlers, and Peat in the Creel.

The Mona Shores Middle Fiddlers played their first concert of the year highlighting some really young talent coming up in the Fiddle program. Director Nick Mosely was even able to recruit the exciting return of Mr. Timothy Staudacher on guitar.

Electrify Your Strings

On Friday December 12, 2014 Several of our Mona Shores High School & Middle School orchestra members had the chance to participate in the Mark Wood’s Electrify Your Strings with Muskegon High School Orchestra. Mlive reports:

Wood, an original member of the Multi-Platinum-selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra and creator of the revolutionary Viper electric violin, has worked with Celine Dion, Lenny Kravitz and Billy Joel, among others.

The Friday night concert was more of a rock concert and full of energy. Vega Goorman and Jason Fitzpatrick were featured performers in a couple of songs. Jason put down his instrument to the Viper for a spin for his featured spot. Mr. Mosely even got in on the fun. Question of the night is who had more fun the audience or the players?

Here are a few shots of the fun.
