Star Anna is the first of several local musicians to get the string treatment from the Synergia NW Orchestra in preparation for Music Matters Live, May 12th at The Paramount Theatre. To be more precise, Star and Justin Davis (of The Laughing Dogs) convened with a small group of the orchestra members to prepare for an appearance on New Day Northwest to promote the show.
They walked into the room complete strangers and an hour later were playing together like this.
Both Star and Justin had participated in school music programs as kids. Star played drums in the marching band and sang in the choir before picking up the guitar. Justin played in every band. His first instrument was the piano, so no marching for him. But both were moved to play in Music Matters Live to support on-going music programs for kids in Washington State schools.
I hope this little tease entices you to join us for Music Matters Live. Get your details and tickets here.
