William Shaub


May 28th - June 4th, 2021​

A week of virtual lessons on orchestral excerpts and orchestral audition preparation.​

Applicants may be young professional violinists preparing for orchestra auditions, graduate students, and undergraduate students. High school students who plan on majoring in music will be considered on a case-by-base basis. 

With a number of music festivals and schools being cancelled this summer, Knoxville Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster William Shaub is presenting a one week virtual workshop on orchestral excerpts with Tuscon Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Lauren Roth, with special guest artist Noah Geller, Concertmaster of the Seattle Symphony.

For one week this summer, apply for a course specifically on the repertoire you will be playing for orchestral auditions.

Each day, participating violinists will receive a 45 minute online lesson in the morning and a 45 minute online masterclass in the afternoon. On Wednesday and Friday, we will have virtual group performance classes followed by mock orchestral auditions, featuring all participating violinists. 

Participants will be e-mailed a packet in advance which includes the orchestral excerpts to be covered for the week, in addition to guiding materials related to audition preparation.
