Music workshops culminate with performance

Over 130 students to participate in free, five-day workshops

The 7th Annual Sun Valley Summer Music Workshops, sponsored by the Sun Valley Summer Symphony in cooperation with Blaine County music educators, will be held Monday through Friday, Aug. 2-6, at The Community School in Sun Valley.

Artistic Director Virginia Allen, a faculty member at The Juilliard School, and workshop coordinator Sara Gorby expect over 130 elementary, middle and high school student musicians to participate in the free, five-day workshop.

The students will study with musicians from the SVSS, the SVSS Music Conservatory and other regional music schools in daily master classes, coaching sessions and ensemble rehearsals.

Classes are offered in string, woodwind, brass and percussion instruments, and in piano, voice, harp, composition and music enrichment. Some of the musicians who will be instructing include Geoffrey Trabichoff, James Dahlgren, Gretchen Van Hoesen, Wendy Max and Sarah Kowitz.

Originally conceived as a program for Blaine County music students seven years ago, the workshops have grown from 35 students in its first year to an enrollment of over 130 students this year.

The students will have an opportunity to perform in one of two concerts on Friday, Aug. 6. The 3 p.m. concert will include the Prelude Orchestra, Concert Choir, Woodwind Ensemble and piano students of all levels. The 6:30 p.m. concert will feature advanced and intermediate students on piano and in the Chorale, the Chamber Music Ensemble and the Sun Valley Youth Orchestra. The evening concert will conclude with the Sun Valley Youth Orchestra and Chorus performing a special arrangement of Handelís "Hallelujah Chorus."
