Tulio Rondón, conductor
This student string orchestra performs two concerts a year. This ensemble is prepared and coached by assistant professor of violoncello, Dr. Tulio Rondón. In spring the chamber orchestra concentrates on music from the baroque and classical periods, in a stylistic fashion called, “historically informed performance practice.” In fall the ensemble concentrates on romantic and 20th century music. Both concerts enhance the technical ability of string playing as well as better understanding of a wide range of repertoire.
