Fridays June 17th and 24th from 1-3pm
Saturdays July 16th and 23rd from 1-3pm
String Mixer Orchestra: Each 2 hour session is $30 per person.
Description: The String Mixer is open to ages 13+ as a tiny intermediate community ensemble of orchestral string instruments (4-8 players).
I like to talk about a little music history, the important roles in the music of each player, techniques and styles of playing, and teaching people what it’s like to be in an orchestra setting. However, we do a lot of sight reading and laughing at our mistakes while sharing the love of music together.
People are encouraged to share sheet music within the group so everyone has a chance to choose what we will play. Ex: Bring a sample for us to sight read and I will print extra parts if needed.
I conduct the ensemble with my five string viola, or fill in on any missing part, as a chamber orchestra setting.
Requirements: Interested participants must register and pay in advance, requiring a four person minimum for the session to commence.
Each person must have their own books of music, please register for details.
Final Details: Music stands and chairs will be provided to each person.
