After a short hiatus, the all-new FSC Summer String Orchestra Camp returned with great fanfare and success, attracting fifty-one campers to participate this summer at Florida Southern College.
Dr. Kira Omelchenko, director of orchestra and strings at Florida Southern College, planned the week-long camp, culminating in a full concert performance experience for the campers. The curriculum incorporated strong elements of musicianship through class piano, aural skills, and theory. There were myriad opportunities for individual-playing development through sectionals, master classes, rehearsals, and of course, the final concert. One of the most intriguing offerings is the World Drumming class.
The wide variety of performances were impressive in the final concert, which included solos, chamber groups, and the entire string orchestra. A fantastic time was had by all; bravo!
