PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Ovations Summer Strings Academy at Mason offers a unique Chamber Music and String Orchestra experience for young string students (rising 7th graders through 12th grade). Program directors Glenn Dewey and Alex Morrison invite you to take part in this challenging and enriching summer program. Participants will work closely with the Guest Conductor, along with award winning area string educators and professional musicians, on challenging string literature in small chamber ensembles. Participants will also perform in one of two string orchestras, with exciting performances by all of the ensembles at the end of the week. Placement seating auditions will take place on Wednesday, June 25th to determine orchestra and chamber group assignment.

2014 Program Highlights:

"Gold" Orchestra:
Latoya Lamons, Conductor

All members of Division 1 will perform in the final concert, both in their chamber ensemble and string orchestra. The primary goal of Division 1 is to provide participants some of their first serious chamber music opportunities, as well as prepare them for more advanced literature in the future. Tone production, intonation, and ensemble and chamber music skills will all be explored.
