Strings for Stewart Park features an eclectic blend of fiddle and violin music with guitar, mandolin and bass accompaniment. Performers include Cornell's Ariana Kim, Ithaca College's Susan Waterbury, and Ithaca musicians Judy Hyman, Tim Ball, Dave Davies, and Rick Manning.

Will Russell will be doing the sound engineering and La Tourelle will host this special event.

The concert supports Friends of Stewart Park's plans to recreate the historic performance venue in Stewart Park between the Picnic 'Large' Pavilion and the Wharton Studio/Park Maintenance Building. In the early days of Renwick Park and Stewart Park there was a beautiful bandshell between the Pavilions that hosted well-attended nightly summer concerts, often featuring the renowned Paddy Conway Orchestra. FSP would like to create the Renwick Performance Plaza with a Cayuga Lake Overlook on the lake edge, between the Pavilions, an area that is currently a parking lot.
