Captain's Best Bet for Tuesday: Junior Strings Host Free Music at Whitehall United Methodist, @PureMichigan, 12-17 @ 7 PM

What a beautiful event filled with nuances and surprises. A known luthier and the best fiddler in three country counties teaching classical violin students how to bluegrass fiddle? And one of those country counties includes Wheatland Music Festival grounds. That would be Danny Seabolt. A musical prodigy from Mona Shores High School gives back to musical kids as he comes back to pay it forward? That would be Jacob Halmich. A professional violinist so renown for her work as a teacher of violin that she teaches classes across the oceans with a web cam. That would be Becky Parks. Is this an afternoon concert or a plot for Glee? And yes, sign your young people up for the strings if you are from Oceana, Kent and Muskegon counties: Junior Strings Host Free Music at Whitehall United Methodist, @PureMichigan, 12-17 @ 7 PM w/ Seabolt Parks & Halmich

FREE White Lake and Oceana Junior Strings Winter Recital
Arts Council of White Lake

The fifth annual Junior Strings Winter Recital will be presented at the Whitehall United Methodist Church, 117 South Division, at 7:00 P.M., December 17, free and open to the public.

Showcased will be violin and cello students, ages three through high school, of the White Lake & Oceana Junior Strings Program. Under the direction of violinist Becky Parks and cellist Jacob Halmich, students will perform solo and group works.

In addition, skills will be presented that were learned throughout November classes taught by special guest "fiddle" instructor Dan Seabolt. These students will treat everyone to some down-home, holiday fiddlin'! 

A young composer's work will also be featured on this recital. This will be the world premiere of an original composition, written and performed by one of our own Junior String students and involving the entire string ensemble.
