Ridgecrest Suzuki Strings will present its annual “Music Around the World” concert Friday, April 5, at 7 p.m. at the Church of the Nazarene.

More than 40 violinists, age 4-17, will dress up in international costumes representing 23 countries and perform more than 50 memorized pieces.

The final portion of the program, “A Tribute to America,” will feature a medley of five military songs and other patriotic pieces.

A reception following the performance will feature international snacks provided by the families of the participants.

Pre-sale tickets are available at Red Rock Books for $7 for adults and $4 for children (18 and under). Tickets at the door will be $10 for adults and $5 for children.

The Suzuki Strings will donate all proceeds from the concert to the Desert Community Orchestra to support live orchestral performances in our community.
