Registration opens for the Hi-Desert Cultural Center’s Summer Camp Strings Conservatory classes with free* loaner violins available
JOSHUA TREE, CA – The Hi-Desert Cultural Center’s popular Strings Conservatory celebrates another fantastic year of success with a free recital that is open to the public. Ranging from beginners to advanced intermediate players from the Center’s recent strings classes, the Strings Conservatory’s forty-five members have spent this past session advancing their skills under the expert tutelage of HDCC Strings Conservatory Director, Phyllis Moss. This unique opportunity to come discover what music making is all about is free to the public and begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 at the Hi-Desert Cultural Center’s Blak Box Theater. As this free recital is normally standing-room only, individuals may choose to reserve a seat for $1 by contacting the Box Office or online at www.hidesertculturalcenter.com. Following the event, there will be registration for the Strings Conservatory’s Summer Camp program.
This session the Strings Conservatory enrollment had over doubled, necessitating the creation of more classes to meet the demand. The Strings Conservatory will again offer the popular summer camp program with exciting new course types and additions. This 3-week summer camp will offer different courses for children, as well as adults, and give all students a tremendous opportunity to “experiment” with a violin or other orchestral string instrument while also learning music theory in a fun and challenging environment. Individuals interested in participating need to register early to obtain loaner instruments, *subject to availability. Students with their own string instrument are also encouraged to join the summer classes.
For more information or to register for the upcoming summer classes, contact the Hi-Desert Cultural Center’s Box Office at 760.366.3777 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
About the Strings Conservatory
The Strings Conservatory is a program of the Hi-Desert Cultural Center’s Desert Music Foundation. After receiving a most generous donation of a large cache of new violins from a local patron of the arts in the fall of 2010, the Cultural Center began the Strings Conservatory as a pilot program – initially offering a beginning strings class for ages 8 and up. The program also offered participants the use, at no charge, of one of the newly-donated violins. The classes and programs were immediately a tremendous success, and the Strings Conservatory has continued to expand its offerings to include advanced beginner, intermediate, and Philharmonic preparatory courses. The Hi-Desert Cultural Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
