New York, N.Y. — Registration is now open for the 14th annual Carlo Aonzo Mandolin Workshop to be held April 24-27, 2014 in New York City.
Aonzo, known as one of the greatest classical mandolinists alive today, has a deserved reputation for warmth, patience, and extraordinary teaching skills. He is devoted to teaching and spreading the Italian style of mandolin ensemble playing.
This workshop provides consistent instruction and guidance from Carlo Aonzo with additional rehearsal led by assistant conductor Rene Izquierdo, Carlo's long time musical partner. Once your registration and payment is completed, you will receive music and part assignments. This year's program will feature music by JS Bach, Handel, Calace, Praetorius, and a beautiful waltz from the turn of the century.
Participants are expected to master the music before we come together to form an orchestra, so register early to get started! This workshop is geared to intermediate and advanced mandolinists. Mandocellists and mandolists are especially encouraged to attend!
Thursday through Sunday are devoted to orchestra playing, culminating in an informal performance Sunday evening.
A few private lessons will be offered on Wednesday before the workshop and the Monday after.
Registration is limited to 42. If you are interested you are encouraged to register as soon as possible. You will receive your workshop music and parts assignment as soon as your payment is received.
