Bookmark and Share

CAREFREE – The Jubilate Violin Orchestra (JVO) will host a fundraiser recital from 3 – 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 10 at the Christ Anglican Church in Carefree. The event is open to the public with a $5 suggested donation at the door.

The fundraiser will help raise money for the JVO and includes performances by the Jubilate Family Choir, an all-ages music group, as well as presentations by the Jubilate Music Theory class.  Light refreshments will follow the recital.

Currently, the JVO offers a general music theory class, where children learn to read music, as well as Level 1 and Level 2 violin instruction classes. These courses are part of an expanding family music program that began under the direction of Fr. Steven Dart.

Starting in August, the JVO is adding an expanded selection of music programs that will include two levels of theory classes and a Level 3 violin instruction course.

While all of the programs are free and open to all ages, the Level 3 course will have tuition, and students must meet second level proficiency for entry.

Laya Field, of Cave Creek, teaches the course. Fields is a classically trained violinist and opera singer who began playing the violin at the age of eight.

All JVO programs take place at the Dorothy McGinnis Hall of Christ Anglican Church, 35500 N. Cave Creek Road, half mile north of the corner of Carefree Highway and Cave Creek Road, in Carefree. For more information, call 480-993-6147.
