The San Antonio Symphony is pleased to announce the 2019-2020 Russell Hill Rogers String Residency Master Class featuring acclaimed violinist and San Antonio Symphony guest artist, Angelo Xiang Yu. The class will give aspiring local violinists firsthand interaction with this master musician. In addition to presenting the master class, Mr. Yu will be performing the Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2 with the Symphony at the Classics Series concerts on Mar. 13 & 14, 2020.

Only student applicants interested in performing in the master class for Mr. Yu (or a parent, if under 18) should fill out this registration form. Students of any age are welcome to apply. As space is limited, candidates for consideration should be advanced with regard to their age. Applicants must be Bexar County residents, attending a school, college or university in Bexar County or attending a school or college outside the county as long as the student is a resident of Bexar County and can show proof of the same. Applicants must be taking private lessons and will need to enter contact information for a private teacher on the following page. Applicants should expect that private lesson teachers WILL be contacted for a recommendation prior to the audition. A short biography for the student will be required on the following page. Auditions will take place (without piano accompaniment) in the H-E-B Performance Hall at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. Applicants will be asked to arrive by 4:45 pm to the Tobin Center on the day of the audition (Thurs., Feb. 20, 2020). Numbers will be drawn at random at 4:45 pm with audition times beginning at 5:00 pm or shortly thereafter. Repertoire for the audition will be the same as the applicant's First Preference repertoire (see registration page) for performance in the class. Auditionees as applicable should be prepared to play the entire movement of their First Preference repertoire, including any cadenzas. Up to four auditionees will be chosen to perform in the master class on Sat., Mar. 14, 2020, in the H-E-B Performance Hall. Students chosen to perform in the class will be responsible for contracting a collaborative pianist as needed.

A lot can be learned through observation. While only a limited number of violinists will be chosen to perform in the class, students of all ages are invited to attend and observe the class. Bring your family and friends! The master class will be FREE and open to the public.

The Russell Hill Rogers String Master Class is made possible by a generous grant from the Russell Hill Rogers String Residency Endowment of the San Antonio Area Foundation
