Presented by the TSO in partnership with the UTAS Conservatorium
The ACO conducts String Workshops during their national tours each year. Students become part of the ACO for a morning, learning rehearsal and performance techniques and playing alongside ACO musicians.
The TSO, in partnership with the UTAS Conservatorium, is thrilled to present this workshop in Hobart as an extension activity for advanced Tasmanian string students. The workshop is free of charge and runs for three hours.
Curriculum-linked professional development resources based on rehearsal leadership and techniques are provided for teachers to support the workshop. Teachers are invited to observe the workshop and talk with our musicians afterwards. String workshops are extension activities for advanced string students.

New for 2018!
The TSO will provide a “pre-rehearsal” talk to prepare students about the works they will hear in rehearsal. A speaker will deliver the talk at your school on an agreed date before the Open Rehearsal.
Watch, listen and learn as the TSO rehearses for a Master Series concert. Observe Chief Conductor and Artistic Director Marko Letonja in action and take note of how the rehearsal process works. Listen to the music as it is tweaked, transformed and polished to perfection.
