WANTED NOW: STRING PLAYERS FOR A ROCK ORCHESTRA CLASS! Here are all the details, as provided by Brittany Frompovich, Forte instructor, performer and internationally known professional bassist, who will lead this exciting summer opportunity:
We are looking for acoustic and electric string players, violinists, violists, cellists and double bassists of all ages and skill levels. We will be performing rock, pop and contemporary classical pieces in an orchestral setting, using both electric and string instruments.
When: Fall 2017 session begins Wednesday, September 13, 7:00 p.m. at Forte Music Studios. We meet for an hour weekly on Wednesday nights. Here is how this group is different than a school or community orchestra: We have opportunities to improvise on some songs. If you don't yet know how to improvise, we will teach you if you are willing to learn. We teach the basics of live sound, amplification, playing an electric instrument, using effects and mics. Past song choices have included music from Hendrix, Queen, Muse, Zeppelin, Guns 'n Roses, Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, The Cranberries and more.
We teach you as much as you are willing to learn about the music business -- practices to engage in for performing, how to use social media properly, contracts, endorsements, jobs in the industry and more! Even if you never work as a musician yourself, you will have a better understanding of the industry and business of being a musician.
We've played various house concerts, venues, flash mobs, churches, and we've been filmed for a TV show and a documentary.
The cost is $120 ($130 after September 14) for the semester, payable by check, cash or credit card. Enrollment is open through September 28.
