Delights and Dances for String Quartet
and String Orchestra


Date: November 16, 2013

Relevance: This innovative work for string quartet and string orchestra afforded an outstanding experience for Preparatory Program students to model pre-professionalism to younger students and for all students to interact with an up-and-coming string quartet in residence, the Altius Quartet. The work features 3 different student populations playing simultaneously with the quartet, with parts commensurate to the playing ability of each. Students from neighboring institutions participated, creating an opportunity for community engagement and arts diplomacy. Students ranged in age from 12-18 years.
