Special String Workshop – Wednesday, May 17th, 9:30 AM!

At 9:30 AM on Wednesday, May 17th in the Angel Falls room of the Hilton Hotel, Wolfgang Weiss from Thomastik-Infeld Vienna will present a very special workshop, focussing on strings as an essential part of your “tools” as a musician.  The workshop will help you better understand how your strings interact with your instrument.  After a brief primer on the history, physical materials, and methods used to make bowed instrument strings, Wolfgang’s presentation will include:

Slow motion videography of how strings vibrate and interact with a bow.

Learning how strings can address common problems like whistling E strings and wolf tones.

Helpful tips for improving the performance and durability of strings on your instrument.

Students are encouraged to bring their instrument.  Following the presentation,  students may ask questions and share experiences with the presenter.
