The Springville Arts Commission will sponsor a concert Sunday, March 20, at the Springville Museum of Art featuring one of the most talented young family groups in America: The Five Strings. The concert is free to the public and starts at 4:30 p.m. The museum is located at 126 E. 400 South, Springville.
The Five Strings are a performing violin group made up of five siblings from St. George: Talisa, Tavia, Tiana, Trevin and Tiarra. Their audiences are amazed at the variety of music they play at such a young age, with the siblings ranging from 6 to 16 years old. In addition to violin, the group features mandolin, guitar, piano and ukulele as well as singing and dancing.
The Five Strings have performed for a variety of audiences from all over the world. A few of their favorite venues they have made appearances at include Branson, Mo., the Tuacahn Amphitheater in St. George, Nashville, Tenn., and performing for the top resorts throughout the islands of Hawaii. In 2013, they released their first album, and they just released their second. The Five Strings’ love and dedication of music shows from the second they raise their bows.
At 16, Talisa is the oldest. She started playing violin at the age of 7 and in addition to violin, she performs with a clogging team and enjoys singing and playing the piano, mandolin, guitar and ukulele. Tavia is 15 and has been playing violin since she was 5. Like Talisa, she competes in clogging and plays piano, mandolin, guitar and ukulele. Tiana is 11 years old and loves to sing. She started playing her violin at 4 and like her big sisters, she clogs, sings and plays piano. Trevin is also 11 years old, but as Tiana will point out, he is seven minutes younger than her. He has also been playing since he was 4 years old and loves to sing and play piano. Tiarra is 6 and often steals the show. Tiarra has been performing since she was 2, playing on her tiny violin.
On April 17, Kelli Brown, a soprano, will perform at the museum. Kelli Brown is from Delaware, Ohio, and is a lifelong lover of singing who has been trained primarily in classical music. While still in Ohio, she sang with the Delaware Women’s Community Choir, performed with the Dublin Community Theater and sang with the Cloak and Dagger Dinner Theater.
