The Eclectic Strings Festival is a fun and informative day of workshops and performances for violin, viola, cello, and bass. You will have three different classes exploring new styles on your instrument such as gypsy jazz, bluegrass, rock and roll, guided by a master teacher. After lunch, everyone gathers in the auditorium for a jam session playing the material covered in the morning classes. Join us for a fun experience in a relaxed atmosphere.
