The class concentrates on ensemble playing skills, study of standard violin repertoire and performance skills. Opportunities to perform and study with nationally known artists and pedagogues are presented during the year. The students have the opportunity to study and interact with their peers in a friendly, yet disciplined atmosphere.
Nevada School of the Arts Violin Repertory Ensemble has been a “show case” for the school for more than twenty years. The Advanced Violin Ensemble has been featured at three, by invitation only, national music educator’s conferences including the 2003 Chicago Midwest Clinic, the 2005 American String Teachers National conference and the 2006 Suzuki Association of the Americas Conference. All of the violinists from this award-winning ensemble have gone on to make wonderful contributions to society and have become exemplary human beings.
“Hearing and watching a small group of performers in a small setting as they communicate through the power of music is a thrilling experience that defies boundaries of age, culture, or educational background. Everyone owes it to themselves to experience the power of chamber music!”-Chamber Music Network of Cincinnati (www.chambermusicnetwork.org)
