Creative Strings Collective
CSC is an innovative string ensemble (violin, viola, cello, bass) that explores non-conventional genres for strings. The course includes but is not limited to the following styles: Jazz, Blues, Folk, Bluegrass, Rock, Pop, Urban, Classical, Experimental and World Musics. Students are encouraged to engage through performance, group collaboration and improvisation, with opportunities for arranging and composition. All repertoire, compositions and arrangements will be chosen or adapted to best utilize the ensemble’s strengths while challenging each member’s abilities at whatever level they may be. Creative Strings Collective is open to all students but some familiarity with the instrument and music fundamentals is recommended. Neither prior improvisational skills nor theory background are required. Note reading ability recommended but not required.
Open to all students, placement hearing by directors.
Meets Tuesdays 4:15-6:15pm HC203
