So I’ve now returned from a three day strings music camp. It was a lot of fun, although quite tiring once you’ve been rehearsing for more than a couple of hours. We had a good guest conductor, who used to go to GWSC as well. We played three pieces: Allegro from Sinfonia No. 6 in G Minor by J. C. Bach, Orientale (Op. 15, No. 2) by Alexander Glazunov and four of the Romanian Folk Dances by Béla Bartók. We’re going to be playing these pieces for the VSMF later in the year, which is the reason behind us going to this camp.
We also had a trivia night and challenge, in which we had to answer music related questions (the trivia) and perform a recreation of a famous movie scene (the challenge). It was an interesting experience, and my group came 5th, which is not a bad effort at all.Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: bartok, concert strings, glazunov, j.c. bach, music, music camp, stephen chin, strings, VSMF
