Acoustic to Electric Violin

Motivational • Inspirational •Educational
Musical • Technological • Anti Bullying

Interactive & FUN!!!!

This program presents the simplicity of the solo acoustic violin and its origins demonstrated by performing a simple Bach minuet. Whisked into present day, Caryn uses the five 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, playing in essence, live duos and trios with herself. This 3 dimensional sound magic is performed right before your eyes!! Plus, with the addition of her sound technician demonstrating and looping electronic drums and guitar... all performed through a full professional sound system. Audiences of ALL ages are captivated. Students are always included and anxious to participate on stage.

Program lasts approximately 45 minutes. Grades K-12
