Caryn Lin presented us "From Bach to Rock, acoustic to electric violin". This program showed the kids the simplicity of the solo Acoustic Violin and its orgins demonstrated by performing a simple Bach minuet. Whisked into present day, Caryn uses the 4 & 5 string Electric Violin and Sound Effects to transcend that "solo" sound by doing what is called "Looping"- creating sound loops live that she adds to and embellishes.
It was on the spot recording creating a Virtual Orchestra!
From K all the way to 5th grade, every kid was so interested and participative! And when the wireless microphone was taken into the audience for more looping and sound effect fun, they were all anxious to participate! Teachers too!
