The Sperreng Fiddlers group, which includes Sperreng and Truman middle school students, and Lindbergh High School fiddler alums, travelled to Northern Indiana last month to participate in the 44th annual Feast of the Hunters’ Moon, as seen on the Lindbergh School District website.
Forty-seven students and their families made the trip to the feast, which is an 18th century reenactment that drew more than 25,000 people daily.
The Fiddlers performed for two days at the feast and explored the nearly 200 vendors spreads over 30 acres of the Fort Ouiatenon grounds. The group also played for residents at a nearby senior center.
Back in St. Louis, a small group of Advanced Fiddlers from 2010-11 also performed at the Ulysses S. Grant Historic site on for the unveiling ceremony of two Civil War era cannons. The cannons may be viewed by the public at the Ulysses S Grant Historic site located off of Gravois, across from Grant’s Farm.
Upcoming colonial fiddler performances by the Sperreng Fiddlers will be at noon Dec. 5, at the Old Courthouse in Downtown St. Louis, and at 1 p.m. May 20 in Frontier Park in Old St. Charles for the annual Lewis and Clark Heritage Days.
