Description

Course Description

Do you love playing your violin, viola or cello? Been taking private lessons or playing in your school orchestra or other ensemble? Then this is the time to come discover why string players are at their happiest playing chamber music. We'll explore string quartets, large chamber ensemble (with no conductor!) and put on a workshop performance for family and friends at the end of the week. We'll even show you the wave of the future for classically trained string players: improvisation! Come get into the swing of the great musical conversation at the heart of string performance.
