Kent-Meridian High School's “String Fusion” group is performing Saturday Feb. 11.

The students are giving a competitive performance at the Green River Music Regional Orchestra Middle School and High School Solo & Ensemble Contest hosted at Mill Creek Middle School. String Fusion will be performing the Allegro from Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

The festival begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. Audience admission is free.

Each group is allotted a 10 minute time slot, so the school advises attendees to show up a little early. The Kent-Meridian performance is at 10:30 a.m. in Mill Creek’s Choir Room B105.

The GRMR Orchestra Solo & Contest will be taking place all day with schools who have orchestra programs from Kent, Auburn, Enumclaw and Dieringer School Districts. All of the orchestra students from Kent-Meridian and Mill Creek will take turns throughout the day helping host the event and monitoring the rooms.

Mill Creek Middle School is located at 620 N. Central Ave.

For more information, call 253-373-7446.
