New Event: PLU Honor Orchestra for Strings
Open to High School String Players from throughout the Northwest
Following the success of another annual event here at PLU, the Northwest Honor Band, we are creating a similar opportunity just for string players this year with the PLU Honor Orchestra for Strings.It will be a two-day festival held annually over a weekend in January, offering individual high school string players from throughout the region the opportunity to perform excellent literature for string orchestra with a nationally recognized guest conductor.
Our first guest conductor for the PLU Honor Orchestra for Strings will be Harvey Felder, Music Director of the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra and recently appointed Professor of Music at the University of Connecticut. Mr. Felder garnered a great deal of praise for his work as our guest clinician at the Orchestra Invitational last fall, and he has already inspired generations of musicians in our region through his work with the Tacoma Symphony. We are proud to welcome him as our inaugural conductor.
