The Church of the Redeemer Recital Series presents the Striking Strings Hammered Dulcimer Ensemble from Eastman Community Music School, Rochester, NY. Under the direction of Mitzie Collins and Linda Sniedze Taggart, the group of about a dozen performers will include tunes from Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, Japan, Latvia, Russia, and France in their program. Enhancing the happy sound of many hammered dulcimers will be the accordion, recorders, Scottish small-pipes, and the medieval hurdy-gurdy. What fun! The concert is free and open to the public.

Striking Strings is celebrating its 10th anniversary as a performing group. They have played at numerous festivals in the eastern United States, as well as at the Old Time Dulcimer Players annual Fun Fest in Evart, Michigan, the largest hammered dulcimer festival in the country. Internationally, members of Striking Strings have performed at dulcimer congresses in Hungary, England, Mexico, and Slovakia. Founder and co-director Mitzie Collins is well-known as a recording artist and historian of the hammered dulcimer and an honorary board member of the Cimbalom World Association, an international organization promoting instruments in the larger world-wide hammered dulcimer family. Co-director Linda Taggart is building a national reputation as a performer and teacher at both local and national festivals.
