VIRGINIA R. HARPHAM STRING ORCHESTRA CLINIC
The 9th Annual Virginia R. Harpham Honor String Orchestra Clinic will take place on Saturday, November 9, 2013 and we cordially invite you and your exceptional string students to be a part of this exciting event at Morehead State University. Because of an overwhelming response in the past, we have created two orchestras. Designed for string students in middle and high school, these orchestras are geared towards musicians who are ready to meet the challenge of more difficult literature. There will also be assistance provided during the day for each instrument group (violin, viola, cello, and bass) and individual students will have the opportunity to discover more about MSU string studies, music admission and scholarship auditions. The cost of the clinic will be $25.00 per student to help defray some of the expenses for the event. Each student will receive a commemorative t-shirt.
We are very excited to introduce the Toomai String Quintet as our featured artists this year. The Toomai String Quintet will work with the High School Orchestra. The guest conductor for the Middle School Orchestras is Dr. Brenda Brenner from Indiana University. Both are experienced in working with young musicians of all levels.
Students will be selected through a nomination process on the form provided. Please type or print legibly the names of your nominees in order, placing the best player as #1. The membership of the Virginia R. Harpham Honor String Orchestras will be based on your recommendations and the constraints of maintaining balanced ensembles. Indicate your recommendation for 1st or 2nd for your violin students. If you have a chamber group interested in Chamberfest please check the box on the form and fill out the information section.
Please accept our invitation to nominate students for Morehead State University’s Virginia R. Harpham Honor String Orchestras. It is our intent to offer you and your students the very best musical experience possible. We welcome your response and look forward to exciting music making with your exceptional students.
