Mark O'Connor Educating Next Generation Of Musicians With Ambitious Schedule Of Master Classes
Published October 14, 2008

Composer and violinist Mark O'Connor will spend the next month teaching and performing at a pair of major music schools on opposite sides of the country. O'Connor takes educating the next generation of musicians seriously – these efforts are in addition to his annual String Camps, where hundreds of students get intensive training and instruction in playing styles from O'Connor and some of the world's finest performers and teachers, each in their specialty area.  

On October 21st, O'Connor will perform a revamped solo violin recital at UCLA's Schoenberg Hall. It's the kick off of a year of lectures and concerts O'Connor will conduct in his role as the inaugural Artist In Residence at UCLA's Herb Alpert School of Music. He will be giving a series of lectures in the days following the 10/21 performance.  
From November 17 - 20, O'Connor will be conducting a residency at Philadelphia's Curtis Institute Of Music. He will be performing his solo violin recital, conducting classes, and lecturing for the string and composition students of professors Ida Kavafian, Jennifer Higdon, and Edgar Meyer (O'Connor will be performing with Meyer at New York's Carnegie Hall 10/29).   

Mark O'Connor is a composer and violinist whose fluency with both classical and American traditions has made him one of the most acclaimed figures in contemporary music. A true natural talent, Mark O'Connor began recording and touring at only 12 years old. O'Connor is celebrating his 35th anniversary as a recording artist this season with a series of new releases on OMAC Records. OMAC is O'Connor's own label, distributed through Allegro and IODA.
