From staff reports
Internationally acclaimed violinist Rachel Barton Pine will have a four-day residency next month in Aberdeen.
Pine will perform at the Aberdeen University/Civic Symphony's spring concert, Music at the Movies, at 7:30 p.m. April 21 at the Johnson Fine Arts Center.
During her stay, Pine will be the keynote speaker for a Magic of the Violin Workshop and visit Aberdeen public schools. The residency is hosted by the 50-member college-community orchestra, conducted by Robert Vodnoy.
Pine, a Chicagoan, has been a soloist with orchestras including the Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis, Dallas, Baltimore, Montreal, Vienna, New Zealand and Iceland symphonies and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
At the April 21 concert, Pine will perform five violin masterpieces that were featured in major motion pictures. The program will include the finales of Brahms' Violin Concerto (There Will Be Blood), Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto (Unfaithfully Yours) and Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 (Master and Commander).
The Magic of the Violin Workshop is being presented by the South Dakota String Teacher Association in conjunction with the Northern State University Office of Online and Continuing Education.
In addition to Pine's keynote address and open master class April 20, there will be sessions April 21 and 22 with clinicians Brian Cole, James Weaver and Vodnoy. Participants will also attend an open rehearsal with Pine and the orchestra and receive tickets for the concert.
