Master Classes and Tune-Ups
Musicians-in-Residence are the perfect “master” instructors for focused technique and Tune-Up Sessions with community musicians, ensembles and music students. During the academic year and the Summer Festival, the opportunity to work directly with selected OICMF guest artists is just too good to miss. Individual guest artists as well as visiting trios and quartets find that the musical life of Orcas Island is populated with highly motivated individuals. The renowned Gryphon Trio and the Miró Quartet*, for example, are delighted to integrate Master Classes for both young and community musicians into their schedule of concert performances and rehearsals. For our preschoolers, teaching artist Rachel Bachman hosts Tune-Up Sessions as well as being the narrator of the musical storytelling Children’s Concert.
