This year’s workshops continue the tradition of the University of Houston All-State Strings Festival allowing students to participate in audition and preparation workshops with the distinguished string faculty at the Moores School of Music. Given the extenuating circumstances in the current global climate we will take this opportunity to practice online performance skills and bring together string students from across the state. All Workshops will be held remotely and meet via ZOOM.
