A String Thing 

When: Wed., July 29 2015
Not every teenager just wants to play electric guitar. Some talented teens take up the violin. You can see the best of the best at the 2015 Thomas and Evon Cooper International Competition for violin, an event that features 22 musicians ranging in age from 14 to 18, compete for a top prize of $10,000 and three full-tuition scholarships to attend the Oberlin Conservatory. After four days of performances on the Oberlin campus, the Recital Finals take place today at 7 at Warner Concert Hall. The Concerto Finals are slated for 8 p.m., Friday, July 31, as the three finalists each perform a complete concerto with the Cleveland Orchestra at Severance Hall. Cleveland's public radio station WCLV 104.9 FM will broadcast the Recital Finals live from Oberlin.Everything that happens at Oberlin is free. Tickets for the Concerto Finals in Cleveland range from $15 to $25. For more information, including a complete schedule and participant information, go to oberlin.edu/cooper. (Niesel)
