GREENSBORO STRINGS

CALENDAR OF EVENTS

Summer 2017

Here's the plan so far.

Violin Group lessons will be on Mon. nights in Room 121 from June 19 through July 31.

I’d like to schedule several group performances in which we’ll play some new ensemble music plus music from our Ensemble Concert and our Group Showcase Concert.  Bring your music notebooks to Group.  I’ll keep you posted about the plans.

Advanced students attend the entire time.  

       They have advanced review assignments and play advanced duets.  

       Students in Book 4 need to own:

          --77 variations on Suzuki Melodies by William Starr

          --Suzuki: Duets for Violins

       Students in Book 5 & up should own the above books, plus 

          Fun for 2 Violins, all 3 volumes, by Marianne Rygner 

For most Mondays, the schedule will be:

     6:00 EVERYBODY

               We'll play pieces from Books 1-3.  Advanced students review and play challenging duets; 

     6:45 We'll play pieces from Books 4 & up and advanced technique work; 

     7:20 to 8:30 (depending on how concert plans go) will be orchestra, starting with intermediate music then advanced.  

Group performances:  to be scheduled.  Keep your eyes peeled.

MORE DETAILS WILL BE POSTED AND SENT OUT ON EMAILAS ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE.
