Marywood University’s music, theatre, and dance department’s Symphony Orchestra will present a concert featuring faculty member, Sophie Till, in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s brilliant Violin Concerto. The concert will be held on Sunday, April 22, 2018, at 4 p.m., in the Sette LaVerghetta Center for Performing Arts. The concert is free and open to the public.
Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto is a beloved work that showcases extraordinary virtuosity coupled with beautiful lyrical melodies for which the composer is known. Other works to be performed include: Blinka’s “Overture to Russian and Ludmilla,” and Dvorak’s “Czech Suite.”
Sophie Till, M.M., clinical assistant professor of violin and viola at Marywood University and director of the String Project at the University, is the featured performer. In her role as director of the String Project at Marywood, Ms. Till’s leadership fostered the University’s String Project, which won the American String Teachers’ Association National String Project of the Year Award in 2010, and was recently featured in a short documentary by WVIA TV. In addition to her work at Marywood, Ms. Till’s search to find musical and technical answers led to her work with Edna Golandsky and the development of the Taubman/Golandsky Approach for Strings. Ms. Till is the first violinist to be appointed associate faculty at the Golandsky Institute, New York.
