Advancing the Arts & Education: Palaver Strings
ERI was proud to sponsor and host a special celebration at the U.S. Custom House (312 Fore Street) in Portland, Maine, on Tuesday, February 6, 2024. The event was put on by Palaver Strings, Portland’s own musician-led string orchestra and after-school strings education program in support of their work and in celebration of their 10th Anniversary Season.
Palaver’s musicians share artistic and administrative leadership, guided by a passion for engaging new audiences, addressing social justice issues, and amplifying underrepresented voices. Equally committed to performance and education, Palaver presents a series of live concerts and serves hundreds of students each year at the Palaver Music Center in Portland.
