San Diego, Calif. — Old Time Music is proud to host a mandolin workshop for musicians of all levels and styles with German classical mandolinist Caterina Lichtenberg on Friday, February 27, 2009, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Old Time Music, 2852 University Ave.

The workshop will pull from Caterina's vast knowledge and understanding of tone, dynamics, color, technique, tremolo, and historical perspective of the classical repertoire for the mandolin. This will be a unique opportunity to have a hands-on workshop with one of the finest classical mandolinists in the world.

Caterina Lichtenberg was born in Sofia (Bulgaria). She began her studies in Magdeburg and finished them with distinction in the fields of mandolin and guitar at the Cologne Academy of Music under the guidance of Prof. Wilden-Hüsgen and Prof. Eickholt.

She is the first-prize winner of numerous national and international music competitions and was a scholarship holder at the Richard Wagner Foundation.

Apart from her duo work with Mirko Schrader (Duetto Giocondo), she concertizes as a soloist and also performs in other chamber music settings, e.g., together with Thomas Müller-Pering (guitar; Germany); John Dearman (guitar; USA), Silke Lisko (Duo Galante), Brigitte Engelhard (cembalo; Austria), Mike Marshall (Mandolin; USA), the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet (USA) and orchestras such as the Dresden Symphony Orchestra, the Aachen Chamber Orchestra, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the members of the Ensemble Recherche, the Radio Symphony Orchestra of Berlin and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. A joint appearance with Art Garfunkel at a TV show complements her artistic work.

Caterina is a sought-after artist and lecturer for national and international festivals and master classes. She was recently appointed to the position of professor at the Cologne University of Music, and currently holds the sole Professorship of Mandolin in the whole of Europe.

There is a $40 fee for the two-hour workshop. To reserve your spot call: (619) 280-9035.
