L'Abri String Ensemble to perform "Christmas Ornaments"

The L’Abri String Ensemble will present a program called “Christmas Ornaments” at the Creative Arts Guild.

The group was formed in 2012, shortly after its parent organization, the L’Abri Symphony Orchestra, moved to Dalton. Its purpose was to act as musical ambassadors from the orchestra, bringing string music to smaller venues where the full symphony could not go. To its adult audiences it brings entertainment and an introduction to the classical style of music. To its young audiences it hopefully gives inspiration to learn about and possibly study stringed instruments.

The ensemble has performed at the NW GA Trade & Convention Center, Faith Christian Academy, Dalton First Baptist Church, Tunnel Hill First Baptist Church, Ridgewood Manor, Royal Oaks, the Dalton-Whitfield Public Library, and the Creative Arts Guild.

The L’Abri String Ensemble began as a quintet, but has since grown to eight members, forming a double string quartet. Jim Burdick directs the group, and does all the musical arrangements. Three of the players are music teachers, and most have full-time jobs.

Members are: Jim Burdick, Miranda Kovac, Nathan Jones, and Hannah Cochran on violin, Evelyn Boullain and Abigail Cochran on viola, and Cecilia Pressnell and Jason Cochran on cello.

The concert will be held Saturday, December 13th at 7pm in the Jonas Performance Hall of the Creative Arts Guild, located at 520 West Waugh Street. Admission is free. Donations are welcome.
