String Fling 2014 (July 27-30)
String Fling, marking its thirteenth year, returns in late July to offer intensive string instrument study to talented students in middle school and high school. Students in private lessons who have completed grade 7 or higher are invited to study on the Missouri State University campus (Springfield, Missouri) from July 27-30.
Students will be coached by the University's full-time string faculty, which includes Dr. David Hays, Dr. Amy Muchnick and Dr. Michael A. Murray, and also benefit from guest faculty instruction. Students receive chamber music and string orchestra assignments, rehearse with different coaches, and perform a concert at the end of the program. Convocations, master classes, and other events combine to make string fling an unforgettable experience.
