Sylvia Wehrs, The Solo Violin: A Journey Through Time

  • Sylvia Wehrs: Solo Violin
    February 11, 2018
    2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach (ORMACO) presents Cleveland-based violinist and teacher Sylvia Wehrs in The Solo Violin: A Journey Through Time. This free concert will take place on Sunday, February 11, 2018 from 2-3pm at the Wadsworth Public Library, 132 Broad Street, Wadsworth.

Ms. Wehrs will trace solo violin literature from Bach’s baroque masterpieces to 20th century showpieces. Along the way, she will discuss how improvements to the instrument in the 18th and 19th centuries led to the violin evolving into one of the most technically difficult and virtuosic instruments to play. With a wide range of colors and effects, Ms. Wehrs will showcase some of the most technically challenging solo violin repertoire.

About Sylvia Wehrs

Sylvia Wehrs is a graduate of Cleveland Institute of Music. She holds both a Bachelor’s in Violin Performance and a Master’s degree in Violin Performance and Suzuki Pedagogy. A fully certified teacher through the Suzuki Association of the Americas, she teaches through the Music Settlement, Laurel School, Bard High School, and maintains a private studio of students in Cleveland and Zimbabwe with ages ranging from three year-olds to adults. As a performer, she performs regularly throughout the Cleveland area with the Akron Symphony, and in chamber and solo appearances in a variety of settings from concert halls to hospitals.

During the summers Ms. Wehrs has participated in Bowdoin International Music Festival, National Repertory Orchestra, and Music Inspire Africa, a life-changing program that allowed her to share her love of performing and teaching music with the people of South Africa and Zimbabwe. Building from this experience, she founded her own program in 2017, Cleveland Harare Music Exchange, which seeks to bring musical guidance to the children of Harare, Zimbabwe through the Suzuki method and high level performances. Ms. Wehrs believes strongly in music education as a tool for social change, and is excited to study this topic as a member of the 2018 Global Leaders Program. As a participant, Ms. Wehrs will have the opportunity to engage a diverse group of students in Chile and Puerto Rico in Spring 2018.
