FARMINGTON HILLS, MI – Children’s Chamber Music Education Fund will proudly feature Odin Rathnam, concert violinist, in their upcoming Violin and Chamber Music Symposium on December 7-8, 2013 at the Costick Center, 28600 W. Eleven Mile Road, Farmington Hills, MI.
The symposium’s theme is “Keys to Solo and Ensemble Success." This event will include master classes, a bowing & technique class and a final concert featuring Mr. Rathnam, Sharon Rothstein, members of her violin studio (in Farmington Hills, MI) and professional musician friends of Sharon.
Since 2010, Odin Rathnam's master classes on Galamian Principles have been inspiring young artists and challenging the curricula of collegiate programs on four continents including the 2013 Starling Delay Symposium at the Juilliard School in New York, by asking two simple questions: Are you able to say what you want musically and are you comfortable while doing so? With these two questions in mind, the revised principles of Galamian, Mostras, Dounis, Flesch, Feher, Yampolsky, Yost, Thomas, DeLay and more are examined in practical application, combined to help individuals unlock physical freedom and personal expression.
Rathnam's own playing, combined with erudite, concise and practical advice on problem solving, artistic interpretation, and psychological/social aspects of navigating the music business are a "must see" for any aspiring young artist.
The symposium schedule includes a Master Class from 1:30-4:30pm on December 7th, and 11:30am -2:30pm December 8th. Master class violin pieces include the first movement of violin concerti of Lalo, Barber, Haydn, and Mozart, and short pieces by Gluck, Kreisler, and Mozart. A breakfast and bowing techniques class is scheduled from 9:30-11:15am on December 8th, and the final concert will be presented at 7:00pm on December 8th as well. Pieces to be performed at the final concert include Brandenburg Concerto #3 by Bach, Winter from The Four Seasons by Vivaldi and Mendelssohn Octet. To register for the symposium or for further information, please contact Sharon Rothstein at (248) 865-3060 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration fees are $10 per master class, and $25 for the bowing techniques class.
