The Past. The Present. The Future. ~ As a gift to humanity, the strings vibrate with a resounding tone of celebration ~

SATURDAY, AUGUST 28, 2021 WWW.LETTHESTRINGSSPEAK.COM


Greetings and welcome to the 6th Annual Celebration of Let the Strings Speak, This year we are celebrating The Past, The Present, and The Future which inspired newly created music by Mona & Lesa Terry. As we celebrate six years we honor those whose shoulders we stand upon and keep space for those who will follow in the future. While most people think they are coming to a concert, past attendees know that the Strings presentation is so much more! The vibrations of the String are the foundation for healing and after the last 16 months, we are all in need of healing.

STRINGS ZOOM AFTER PARTY Immediately following the Concert Join Dr. Mimms, Mona, Lesa and many of the performers for a post concert discussion on ZOOM.

Mona and Dr. Lesa Terry, the dynamic duo, are passionate about bringing the arts, opportunities, awareness, possibilities and dreams to people of color; young and old. Each year I think it could not possibly be any better. Each year, I am delightfully surprised as they raise the bar to new heights. Bravo to both of you and thank you for being the example and walking out endless possibilities!
