WANTED: String players for a Winter/Spring 2019 Rock Orchestra Class!
WE ARE LOOKING FOR acoustic & electric string players; violinists, violists, cellists, & double bassists of all ages & skill levels.
We will be performing rock, pop, and original music in an orchestral setting that uses a rock rhythm section (drums, guitars, and bass guitar). We use both electric & acoustic string instruments. We still have room for a drummer to join us and possibly one more guitar player. This semester we will be focusing on the music of Queen.
WHEN: Rock For Strings WINTER Session 2019 begins on Wed. Jan. 9th, 8:00 to 9:00 PM at Forte Music Studios. We meet weekly on Wednesday nights. Forte Music is located at 1691 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Fredericksburg, VA 22401. More info at fortemusicstudios.com.
Here is where this group is different than school or community orchestra; we teach the basics of live sound, amplification, playing on an electric instrument, using effects, and mics. We’ve played various house concerts, venues, flash mobs, churches, the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon, and we’ve been filmed for a TV show. We are open to string players of all ages and skill levels.
We are scheduled to perform at the 2019 Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon on May 19th, 2019. Other semester concerts are in the process of being scheduled and booked.
Winter session 2019 will focus on prepping for our annual performance at the Marine Corps Half Marathon in May 2019. There will be multiple concert events during the semester as part of this prepwork.
We are spending this semester focusing on the music of QUEEN.
