LIMA Workshop Series 2023 | Charlie McCarthy + PostClassical Violin
Join Charlie McCarthy and Camerata Obscura players in a workshop / open rehearsal Postclassical Violin:
Music genres and musicality which players investigate after a prolonged period or immersed career of playing exclusively classical music. It is a great way to utilise your existing knowledge and technique in other genres.
Classically trained violinists/musicians, are you ready to explore new sounds and expand your musical horizons? Join Australian-based violinist Charlie McCarthy for an upcoming jazz violin improvisation workshop tailored specifically for classically trained players. Charlie's background is impressive - he's performed with symphony orchestras, Celtic dance bands, chamber ensembles, jazz combos, bluegrass and Irish bands, and has been a session musician for movie soundtracks and studio recordings. With over three decades of performance experience, Charlie is a master of his craft and has a wealth of knowledge to share.
Despite his diverse skillset, Charlie began learning the violin at a young age and comes from a classical background, so he understands the unique challenges faced by classically trained musicians looking to explore improvisation. With Charlie as your guide, you'll learn to infuse your classical training with jazz sensibilities and explore the art of improvisation. Join us for an unforgettable experience filled with music, learning, and fun!
