Intermediate String Players
Sunday 10 January
10am – 4pm
Advanced Vibrato (Higher Positions & Double Stops) for Upper Strings
Monday 5 and 12 October
A two-part series focusing on developing vibrato for advanced violinists & violists. A follow on to the July vibrato session, but equally as accessible to new participants, these sessions will allow you to extend your vibrato skills in the higher positions and with double stops and to explore the different colours and textures which can be achieved for different characters. This is recommended for advanced players
Intermediate players are invited to join Nicky Benedetti, conductor Alex Laing and our amazing team of tutors online to work together on Holst’s St. Paul’s Suite, Movement 1. In a unique blended experience, we will be sharing a day of music making brought to you from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Whether you’re in a small ensemble across Wales, or at home on your own, this will be a day not to miss.
