Tuning In To Music Master Class Strikes a Chord

Tuning in to MusicGreenwich Alliance for Education’s Tuning In To Music students had a very special experience playing music for two hours with the Haven String Quartet on Monday, Oct. 26 at the Greenwich Arts Council building.

More than 50 students, their parents, and music teachers were present to take part in master classes with these talented and enthusiastic musicians. People who happened to be at the Greenwich Arts Society/Senior Center followed the strains of haunting and enticing music to see what was happening.

After a short performance of “Pannonia Boundless” by Aleksandra Vrebalov played by the Quartet, violin, viola and cello students broke off into smaller groups to work on their skills, techniques, and pieces of music.

Some students even performed solo pieces for their groups and were given feedback by the instructors.  Violin students made up the largest group and were later joined by the violas and all performed “Lean on Me” for the audience as the culminating event.

On Saturday, November 7, 2015 at 1:00 pm select Tuning In To Music students will perform alongside the outstanding Haven String Quartet in a short recital at the Greenwich Library’s Cole Auditorium.  This recital is open to the public… no registration is required.

Following this recital, there will be a free family concert as part of the Curiosity Concert Series at 2:00pm.  The public concert is free, but reservations are required at
www.CuriosityConcerts.org.
