Description


Super Strings is a week of string fun for ages 11 to 17, starting with classical chamber music mornings, and then rock and electric string playing, fiddle, eurythmics and improvisation in the afternoon with bass guitar lessons for the whole camp.   This summer we are adding Beat Boxing!

Classical music coaches include Cornish faculty and Pacific Northwest Ballet Concertmaster Michael Jinsoo Lim, Mara Gearman, violist from the Seattle Symphony, Annie Center, violist and renowned chamber musician, Steve Cresswell, string coach at Lakeside School,  Paige Stockley, Cornish cello faculty and founder of the St. Helens String Quartet,  and  Steve Schermer, bass player for the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra. Afternoon faculty will be  Alex Guy, violist from the band Led to the Sea, Brandon Vance, national Scottish Fiddle Champion,  Kathy Moore, well known Seattle rock guitarist, and early music specialist Jessica Korotkin from Oberlin Conservatory.  Everyone will get a chance to learn  beat boxing with bass player Isaac Castillo.  No experience is necessary for the rock, fiddle and improv classes of the camp and mornings will be filled with the classics from Dvorak to Bach to Mozart.
