Faculty of Music and LCMC hosts High School String Symposium
The Laurier Centre for Music in the Community welcomes local High School
students who play string instruments (violin, viola, cello, and double bass)
for the annual two day invitational High School String Symposium. Coming from
five regional schools, selected students will work with guest conductor Ben
Bolt-Martin, the Penderecki String Quartet, and senior Laurier music
Begun in 2008, this program enriches the local school orchestras
and gives high school students a glimpse of life in the Faculty of Music at
Laurier. Dr. Lee Willingham, Director of LCMC said, "Not only are the visiting
students enriched by this experience; our music majors develop important
leadership skills in addressing the challenges of teaching both technique and
repertoire to our neighbouring high school students."
There is a public
open rehearsal and performance from 2:30-3:00 pm on Tuesday, February 25, in
Maureen Forrester Recital Hall.
