Meramec Fifth Grader Performs During WeCare Outdoor Concerts

Meramec fifth grader, Sabrina Perng, participated in an outdoor concert series called WeCare Outdoor Concerts. She performed Minuet No. 3 by JS Bach on her violin.
These series' are voluntarily initiated by local and some of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra musicians. They hope to bring the beauty of classical music into the community and to relieve mental stress during this trying time.
Sabrinas's dad Dr. Yi-Chieh Perng invited virologist Derek Platt, who was just elected 30 under 30 by Forbes, to speak on the day of the event to remind the concert audience of the importance of wearing face masks and practicing social distancing to encourage the community to do its part during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ariel Premium Supply Inc. sponsors these events by providing a sound system and giving away 100 face masks at each concert. More outdoor concerts are planned for the Clayton area on September 12 and September 20.
