Saint Mary’s String Camp participants — on campus July 13-20 — will work on developing their skills and musicianship to master many important aspects of string playing in the contemporary era. Throughout this eight-day camp, participants will have the opportunity to work closely and intensively with the faculty to improve their skills in solo, chamber music and orchestral playing.
The public is invited to three free concerts by these talented young musicians:
July 18 — 7:30 p.m. student solo recital
July 19 — 7:30 p.m. student chamber music recital
July 20 — noon string orchestra concert
All concerts will be held in Figliulo Recital Hall, located in the Saint Mary’s Performance Center.
The string orchestra will perform Mozart’s “Divertimento in F major, K. 138;” Coreelli’s “Concerto Grosso in D Major, opus 6 no. 4;” “Company” by Philip Glass; and “Capriol Suite” by Warlock. The student solo recital will include works by Mendelssohn, Bach, Vaughan Williams and Beethoven. The chamber music concert will include string quartets by Haydn, Mozart and Ravel.
