Record funds raised at Peter and the Wolf Faculty Recital
Thursday, February 6, 2020
Young families and community members filled nearly every seat in the Nelson Music Room on Saturday, February 1st while the Duke String School faculty and friends took the stage to perform Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, narrated by David Ballantyne of WCPE and conducted by Shelley Livingston. The program also included an Andrew Bird arrangement by Rob Rempher and Matt Stutzman and B.B. Wolf for solo bass and narration performed by Zachary Hobin.
The audience graciously donated $2,115– a record for the DUSS Faculty Fundraiser Recitals! These funds make up a significant portion of the $10,000 given each year to families in need of financial aid to participate in lessons and ensembles at DUSS.
