Three GKSOM Day Camps, all virtual, coming soon; free registration
calendar icon09 Oct 2020
Three day camps (Cellobration, Viola Bash, and Bass Day) at the Glenn Korff School of Music will be taking place soon. All will be done virtually so you can take part wherever you are, and all are free to attend.
First on Saturday, October 17, both Cellobration and Viola Bash will take place.
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Cellobration is open to cellists of all ages and will be hosted by Dr. Karen Becker, professor of cello in the Glenn Korff School of Music. This year’s event will take place in a virtual setting. Activities will include stretching for cellists, warm-ups, technique class, a workshop on how to improve sight reading skills, a final performance given by the UNL Cello Choir, select soloists from the UNL cello studio, Dr. Karen Becker, and guest cellist Dr. Ruth Boden. Students will have the opportunity to work with Dr. Boden, cello professor at Washington State University in a class on improvisation and alternative styles, as well as a masterclass. Students will be considered for the class based on a video submission of their playing. Come join our day of cellobrating. The event is free and open to all cellists, cello teachers, and cello enthusiasts!

The 8th annual Viola Bash will take place between 10:00 am and noon via Zoom! That’s right: this year, the Viola Bash is coming right to your living room! The event will feature recorded performances from NEBratsche (the UNL student viola ensemble) and individual university students. But mostly the focus will be on the viola players of our community and beyond. The event will include instruction on a wide range of range of topics and a master class with Glenn Korff School of Music viola professor Clark Potter for a few students who are interested in getting some feedback on a solo piece. Designed for violists of all ages, the only thing missing from this year’s Bash will be the donuts, which I’m sure will be a loss to those students who have been coming for years. We hope we can make that up to you in 2021!
