Irish fiddle music is heard the world over, whether it’s at a traditional pub session, where fiddlers and other musicians gather to play for an evening’s fun, or in a professional setting at a ceilidh (ˈkālē/), concert or festival. The Irish fiddle tradition has become common for fiddlers across the British Isles, Europe, America and beyond, and today some of the finest players are not even Irish by birth. For any violinist wishing to step beyond the Suzuki repertoire and classical style, the Irish jig or reel is one of the first stopping points. Eric Ryan-Johnson has taught Irish fiddle at workshops including the Ottawa Suzuki Institute Mid-Southwest in Kansas, the Greenville Texas Suzuki Workshop, and the O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreats and Youth Camps in the Dallas-area. Students will learn several tunes, then learn to apply Irish fiddle technique and ornamentation to the tunes. Students will perform at the Festival Concert.
Science, technology, engineering, art and math will all come together in this year’s OSI Art class! This class, open to ALL age levels, will focus on student creativity, design, and execution as students create a robot using found materials, craft supplies, and LED lights. Since this project is student driven, each robot will be differentiated based on the camper’s age and ability. We look forward to building awesome memories with you in art!
If you register for art, please bring items to contribute to our “found” stash of building goodies for our robots. Items to bring include but are not limited to cardboard from paper towels/toilet paper, stickers, googly eyes, feathers, random odds and ends, etc. If it can spark a child’s imagination, bring it!
Designed for young vocalists and instrumentalists, this program focuses on developing individual performance skills in a rock band setting, and lays the groundwork for writing your own songs. All students are encouraged to explore song writing at their own level, but covering songs will be common. Tim Warden is the vocalist and guitarist of Rozenbridge, a “ripping and dynamic duo,” along with cellist Christian Serrano. Rozenbridge is known around NW Arkansas for their refreshing mix of music genres: folk, reggae, bluegrass, rock, and metal. Their style ranges from high energy to a soft, ambient-intimate setting. They regularly feature and collaborate with other local artists and work to showcase and bring together the artistic/music community in NWA.
