At the College of Musical Arts, string playing participation helps our students grow, learn, and thrive while they use and develop their personal, physical, and intellectual skills. Our internationally acclaimed string faculty value the lessons that have long been taught by musical participation: the pursuit of excellence through personal development and teamwork, ethical and responsible behavior, adherence to the spirit of rules, leadership and strength of character, and musicianship. Additionally, we promote respect for one’s colleagues, acceptance of success with humility, and the acknowledgement of less successful endeavors with grace. In teaching these lessons to our students, the string area instills habits which will lead our students to professional goals in performance, education and related disciplines.
Honors Festival for Strings
The BGSU Honors String Festival invites intermediate to advanced high school string players who are eager to develop their technique and prepare for collegiate auditions. Participants will experience sectionals, master classes and audition workshops with the BGSU string faculty, plus a campus tour and a Dalcroze Eurhythmics class.
The culmination of the Festival will be the Bowling Green Philharmonia concert at 8:00 p.m. All participants will perform side-by-side with the orchestra.
