The Saltarelli String Orchestra consists of all volunteer musicians. It began 45 years ago at Trinity University under the direction of Maestro Domenick Saltarelli. After his passing his wife, Florence Saltarelli, began conducting the orchestra. The multi-talented ensemble performs arrangements from various eras for free on the last Monday of each month.
