Snipes Academy Welcomes Violinist Ray Chen on September 16th

New Hanover County School’s (NHCS) long standing partnership with the Office of Cultural Arts at the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) will bring inspiration to NHCS students. On September 16, 2013, world-renowned violinist Ray Chen will perform for students of Snipes Elementary Academy of Arts and Design. Ray Chen is currently on a world tour and is scheduled to be in Wilmington for his performance at UNCW on September 19, 2013.

This unique event will not only expose Snipes Academy students to classical music, but it will also teach them proper audience etiquette, and perhaps a newfound love for the arts. In addition to the musical performance by Chen, students will participate in a “petting zoo,” which allows them to have a hands-on experience with violins and other stringed instruments.
