The world-renowned Miro Quartet, the professional string quartet in residence at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas, came to Westwood to work with the Symphony Orchestra students on September 19th. The Symphony is currently working on a piece of string quartet repertoire, two movements of Beethoven's String Quartet in c# minor, op. 131 (with an added bass part by Dmitri Mitropoulus). As the Miro Quartet performed the entire 42-minute quartet at their recent recital at UT, it was a perfect opportunity for these musicians to share their expertise with the Symphony Orchestra's musicians.
For more information on this fantastic group of musicians, please go to their website, miroquartet.com and see videos and more! The Westwood students are thankful for this opportunity to work with such world-renowned musicians.
A string quartet of talented Westwood Orchestra students performed on September 15 at the Bullock Texas State History Museum for the Texas Teacher of the Year Awards Ceremony. Teachers of the year from all the regions of the state, as well as many Texas dignitaries were present at this event. We're proud that our students provide music for this event annually!
