Study in the strings program seeks to develop students’ talents to the highest musical and professional levels. Through private lessons, faculty members offer rigorous instruction tailored to the needs of each student. In addition to coursework, the strings program exposes students to broad orchestral repertoire, instrumental and performance technique, master classes, and a range of opportunities to perform with small and large ensembles and chamber groups.
Professor of Conducting Raphael Jiménez leads the Oberlin Orchestra, one of the conservatory’s premier large ensembles. The full-size undergraduate orchestra regularly performs in Finney Chapel, has embarked on national and international tours during winter term, and is heard on several recordings.
