Each evening between 7 and 8PM the coaches offer optional activities of musical interest. Beginning this week Scott led a session on "Scales for String players." On Tuesday Philip held his "Tips for getting you H.I.P." on baroque performance practice in the Hinkle Room. On Wednesday Alexander hosted a very special lecture by Alexander Knapp, expert on the music of Ernest Bloch. Pictured above are photos from Wednesday's lecture with Professor Knapp with a participant string quartet preparing to perform Bloch's Third String Quartet. On Thursday evening Angie Schmidt led a session on "Improvisation for Strings."
Below are pictures from Thursday's recital. Angel plays soprano saxophone with a string quartet.
Our Stage Manager "T" Lund sets the stage for the next performance. It must be Thursday because he is wearing his Ashland City Band shirt.
