This ensemble explores ways to incorporate regional fiddle styles (including Appalachian/old-time, Celtic, Scandinavian, and related traditions) into varied small string ensemble formats, using extended concepts of modal harmony and contrapuntal strategies. Students will play and develop arrangements of traditional repertoire, the work of contemporary fiddle music composers and tunesmiths, and their own compositions in both traditional and experimental neotraditional styles.
