Fall 2020

Hello Fiddle Orchestra Members! 

We held strong together through our Spring Season, played tunes throughout the Extended Season, and have joined together for some tunes throughout the summer season- and now we turn our eyes (and ears) towards the Fall 2020 season, which by the way is the beginning of FOWM’s YEAR 4

The distancing situation is not going to change in the fall, and as the sun sets earlier and the chilly weather arrives, opportunities to play outside will become limited, but don’t worry, we’ve got some plans in store to keep your spirits buoyant and your fingers playing.

THREE-PART FALL 2020 PLAN

15 weeks! September 3 to December 17: 

Part 1: Outdoor Sessions at Historic Northampton

Thursdays  5:30-7:30 AND  Saturdays  2:00-4:00. Come to either or both! Thursdays and Saturdays run until October. Saturdays will continue until our fingers get cold. We hope for an October outdoor Saturday afternoon mini-concert in the park.

Part 2:  One Tune, One Tip – 10 Weeks 

Beginning October 8th, Annika will be back with Youtubes – Each week she will send out 2 videos- a new tune and a musical tip.  These may include tips related to a specific tune, a shift in mindset to try during practice, or a music theory idea to explore! 

Part 3:  Ten Thursday Night Zoom Workshops!

Led by our New England favorites, including:  Annika Amstutz; Becky Hollingsworth, Rebecca Weiss & David Kaynor; Becky Tracy & Keith Murphy; Julia Plumb; Baron Collins-Hill; Peter Siegel; Susan Conger; Lissa Schneckenberger & Corey DiMario; Alden Robinson; and Van Kaynor. They will be teaching tunes, sharing techniques, talking about ways to take our playing to the next level, and we’ll have time for Q&A’s and saying ‘hi’.

Time: 7- 8pm

Thursday Workshop Dates:

October 8, 15, 22, 29

November 5, 12, 19

December 3, 10, 17
