String & Harp Studies

Studies in Strings & Harp

  • 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.
