giving strings from past year

Giving Strings Orchestra will perform its 22nd annual benefit concert at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 14 in the 200 block of Ridgewood Avenue in Oakwood.  All are welcome.

The concert is free but donations will be accepted and a silent auction will be held with proceeds benefitting Hannah’s Treasure Chest, a local organization providing clothes, books, shoes, safety equipment and hygiene items across Butler, Greene, Montgomery and Warren counties.

This year’s soloist is Micheal La Mattina, a percussionist who plays in the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and teaches at Miami University.  Dr. Patrick Reynolds, assistant conductor of the Dayton Philharmonic, will conduct the all-volunteer orchestra.

If you would like more information or are interested in donating items or services for the silent auction, please call Austin Choi at (937) 520-5060, Garrett Enseleit at (937)657-4989 or email

Audience members should bring their own lawn chairs or blankets to the concert. In case of rain, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Oakwood will be the alternate location.
