Medina High School Orchestra conductor Shelly Jansen leads students from the Medina Symphony and String orchestras at the annual “Strings in the Park” event on Public Square. Held at the end of May each year, the concert is the last one in high school for some students. The event used to showcase elementary school students, but because of budget cuts, the high school took over the tradition. “It is very difficult to play outside,” Jansen said. “High school students are more geared to do it than younger kids.” (ANDREW DAVIS / GAZETTE)
