String students have the opportunity to perform as soloists in solo recitals, group recitals and studio classes. A thriving chamber music program usually sees about a dozen quartets rehearsing and performing regularly. The large ensembles frequently feature student soloists on concert programs, tour programs and in the St. Olaf Orchestra’s annual Senior Soloists concert in May.
Instruction in violin, viola, cello, double bass, harp, and Hardanger fiddle for music majors and non-music majors is offered in private weekly half-hour or hour lessons.
