     I hope everyone had a very nice & happy Thanksgiving with families, relatives and friends!


    On behalf of NJMTA I thank all the teachers for your wonderful students and their participations. Your valuable teaching and experience are constantly raising the level of performance for strings at every event of NJMTA. 


    As is the usual case at the NJMTA State Conference, we had three performers from Young Musicians Competition. Their performance gave us such an unforgettable memory!  For the age group of 10 and under, the first place winner was Katherine Jung. Tienne Yu was the first place winner in the age group of 11-14. She had also been the first place winner in the youngest group in 2014. From the age group of 15-17 Emily Wang held her first place title for the second consecutive year. Bravi to these wonderful young talent violinists! Bravi to the teachers for their great teaching, and the families, for their endless support behind the scenes!

       

    For the first time since 2009 during which I’ve been chair for the strings department for NJMTA, we held a chamber music master class at the NJMTA Conference. We had three fine guest artists coaching the master class: Anne Ku, violinist, Rachel Ku, violist and Mr. Glenn Fischbach, cellist. Five chamber music groups participated: two string quartets, two piano trios and one piano quintet. It was my first time hosting a chamber music master class, and I feel that it was a tremendous experience and a great opportunity for the chamber music players. Studying a string instrument can be a challenge, but playing with other people in a group is so much fun! I assure you that this program will continue to grow in the future. 

       

    Once again thank you very much for your support and your wonderful students!


    Sincerely,


    Ingrid Tang

    String Chair of NJMTA
