Expand your ideas about what cello ensemble music can be. We are excited to have Patrick, Torch, Laura, and Ivan, from the band, Break of Reality, lead this hands-on workshop. The workshop will last 3 hours with 2 breaks. The Band will cover (i) small ensemble playing and (ii) getting started with improvisation. Here's the program:
Hour 1: Demonstration session where the BOR members give an introduction, play a piece or two, talk about what they do as group, and discuss specific things, such as communication in music and extended techniques, and closing with a question and answer section.
Hour 2: Hands-on session where we'll discuss composition and specifics about how BOR members go about composing, and lead that into an improvisation section where the attendees can do some improv with us [this will be way cool].
Hour 3: Hands-on session where we'll break into smaller groups to each work on our own piece with improv to play at the end of the hour for the rest of the group.
BRING YOUR CELLO and ENDPIN REST.
Fee: $25.00 prepaid; $35.00 at the door.
