We have a great opportunity for our Strings Program students thanks to a generous donation. Jazz violinist from the Netherlands, Tim Kliphuis will offer a jazz workshop for our Strings Program students on Friday, May 11th from 3:30 to 4:30 at the Robert J. Elkington Middle School. No experience with jazz required. This workshop is open to all of our Strings Program students. Tim has worked with our students a number of times over the years, most recently with the IOSP Summer Jazz Camp this past summer. He travels all over the world teaching workshops and performing. We are looking forward to welcoming him back!
Tim will perform the Violin Concerto he composed with our Itasca Symphony Orchestra concert on Saturday, May 12th. It is a really cool work infused with jazz, blues and funk elements. See http://www.timkliphuis.com/ for more information about Tim Kliphuis.
