Chris Howes: Harmony, Improvisation, and Good Business for Creative String Players

Tuesday / November 2, 2010 / 1:00 p.m.
Berk Recital Hall
1140 Boylston Street
United States

This interactive workshop will explore a range of (jazz and modern) harmonic expression on orchestral string instruments. It will propose non-harmonic structures for regular improvisation and composition practice.
It will also cover career/music business issues for non-classical string players.
Whether as a performer with a recognizable voice in many styles, recording artist, producer, composer, festival presenter, or educator, Christian Howes has made a wide-ranging career as a nontraditional violinist and he will provide insights specific to string players based on his experience.
