Faculty String Recital: TCO violinist Beth Woodside and friends

September 22 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Faculty String Recital: TCO violinist Beth Woodside and friends

A faculty string recital by Cleveland Orchestra violinist and TMS faculty Beth Woodside, TCO violist and TMS facultyLembi Veskimets, and TCO violinist Emma Shook. Beth and her friends will perform works by Bach, Rozsa, Halvorsen, and Dvorak.

Beth Woodside joined The Cleveland Orchestra in 1994. She began her violin studies at age 5 with the Suzuki Method for the first 5 years, and then a variety of traditional methods through graduate school. During her college years she studied with Josef Gingold, James Buswell, Stanley Ritchie, Peter Salaff, and William Preucil. Ms. Woodside previously held positions with the New World Symphony and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. She has participated professionally with many other symphonic and chamber ensembles, including the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, Mainly Mozart Festival, Cleveland Chamber Collective, and the Cleveland Composer’s Guild. As a student, she attended many of the best festivals (Brevard, Great Woods (MA), L.A. Philharmonic Institute, The Quartet Program, Spoleto, Schleswig-Holstein, and Tanglewood) and worked with some of the world’s greatest conductors (Leonard Bernstein, Michael Tilson Thomas, Sergiu Celibidache).

Beth has two teenage daughters who have studied Suzuki violin each since the age of 6, so she has first-hand experience as a Suzuki mom. She has also been teaching for 7 years, using mostly Suzuki and some traditional repertoire.
