Let the Strings Speak is the brain child of Dr. Maxine Mimms, founder of Evergreen State College Tacoma campus and educator since 1950. It’s a collaboration with Dr. Lesa Terry, violinist and educator and her twin sister Mona Terry, CMP, Mona Terry, featured harpist. The collaboration is inclusive of the music from the Pan African Culture that sustains and feeds your soul. We partner with other professional musicians along with up and coming young artists and plant a seed of possibility. As educators we believe that the sounds from the String instruments reduce the noise level in our development and learning raises the energy and allows us to reach for excellence. We are excited to present this intergenerational program for our 3rd year and invite the community to join us for an afternoon of healing.
