Cellopaloosa V and Strings 360°
May 4, 2013, 10 a.m. - 10 p.m.
Artists: The Tokyo String Quartet and VCU faculty
Note: Advance registration for Strings 360° stops on Friday, April 26, 2013. After this date, walk-up registration is welcome (no parking or lunch are included).
Strings 360º has combined with VCU's Cellopaloosa to present a full day of workshops for the serious string player. Bring your instrument (violin, viola, or cello), get inspired, and take your playing to the next level! The day will include workshops from VCU String Faculty and special guest artists: the Tokyo String Quartet.
Our evening celebration of strings will continue with a concert featuring special guest artists, the Tokyo String Quartet as part of the Mary Anne Rennolds Chamber Music Series. This is a very special event because it is one of the group's final concerts! They are scheduled to retire in Summer 2013.
Strings 360º participants and their families can purchase Tokyo String Quartet concert tickets for a discount. Once you buy your registration to Strings 360º, you will be emailed a discount code to purchase up to four $25 tickets -- 20% below the regular price. Purchase your tickets quickly after registering for the workshop because the concert will sell out! This will be one of the Tokyo String Quartet's final concerts. The group is scheduled to retire in Summer 2013.
Players ages 13-18 may take part in our Competition 360° on May 3, 2013 -- the evening before the Strings 360º workshops. Players can compete to perform in a master class taught by members of the Tokyo String Quartet. Competitors are strongly encouraged to bring their own pianist, but one will be provided by Strings 360º for those who need one.
