Strings on the Bay is a concert series that Bay College is pleased to support and partner with each summer.

The series completed its 20th year this past summer.  The series features three concerts with the Bay String Orchestra of Paul Lundin. Each concert features a certain type of music and string instruments.

Strings on the Bay 2014 Concert Series

The series begins Tuesday, June 24th with a “Violin Duel.” Violinist Tracy Dunlop “battles” violinist and Strings on the Bay’s music director Paul Lundin in a program of violin duos that span three centuries. The second concert on Tuesday, July 15th is a return engagement for Eastern Michigan University’s faculty pianist Garik Pedersen and cellist Diane Winder, joining Lundin for “Halloween in July.” A spooky sounding trio based on Irish folk songs, the “Devil’s Trill Sonata” and the “Ghost Trio” comprise a delightfully scary evening. The summer concert series concludes Tuesday, August 12th featuring a string quartet from the Ann Arbor area playing a program entitled “The Killer B’s.” Works by the three most beloved composers of all time are featured – Bach, Beethoven and Brahms!
