Creative Strings Collective

An innovative string ensemble (violin, viola, cello, bass) breaks into nonconventional genres for strings in addition to performing traditional string orchestra repertoire. The course includes but is not limited to the following styles: bluegrass, blues, classical, fiddle, jazz, Latin, pop, and tango. Students are encouraged to engage through performance, improvisation and theory with opportunities for arranging and composition. Students need only basic skills on their instrument and an open mind. Neither prior improvisational skills nor theory background are required.

Open to all students, placement hearing by director.

Note: Contact director Amber Dolphin prior to registration.
