Our 5th Annual Fiddle Fest, hosted in conjunction with ASTA-AZ and Campo Verde HS, is just around the corner! Each year, we bring in different guest artists to teach and work with students and teachers from around the state of Arizona. This year, we’re incredibly excited to be welcoming fiddlers and multi-instrumentalists Adrianna Ciccone & Colin Cotter!
How is it nearly December?! The 5th season of the Gilbert Town Fiddlers has already been off to a crazy start, with more performances at this point in our season than any previous year. We’ve played for Trinity Church’s Harvest Festival, Sunrise Senior Living Center, Las Alegras Retirement Community, and as the special guests at Liberty Market’s 1st Annual ALS Fundraiser Picnic. Whew!
As we wrap up the semester, we’re in the process of planning just a few more performances and are getting stoked for the 5th Annual Fiddle Fest in January! Registration will be open shortly.
Join the Gilbert Town Fiddlers for their final concert of the 2015-2016 season! Featuring all-original arrangements by the fiddlers themselves, this is going to be a concert jam-packed with awesome tunes that you won’t soon forget. There will also be CDs and t-shirts for sale!
It’s been a crazy few months here at the Gilbert Town Fiddlers, but we’re excited to share our new logos (shown above and to the side) designed by the brilliant Saskia Leggett in collaboration with our students!
And while our site still needs some more work, we’ve also added all of our current student bios and photos for the 2014-2015 season. Learn about our musicians here!
We’re looking forward to the next few months, which will include some workshops with incredible musicians, our annual elementary school tour, and a performance for members of the American String Teachers Association next month at the state conference of the Arizona Music Educator’s Association. Exciting times!
On April 21st, the Gilbert Town Fiddlers had a first for our organization–our very own, full-length concert! In addition to being a great moment for the organization as a whole, it was also a great experience for our students. Not only did the fiddlers run their portion of the concert entirely by themselves, but we even had an opening act! Thanks to young violinist and fiddler Joseph Jorgensen for providing such a great start to the evening!
We’re in the process of uploading some videos from the concert to YouTube, and also adding them here on our site. Additionally, we will soon have photos from our brilliant photographer, Denise Karis!
Thank you to all of those who attended and who have supported us in these first two years! We’re looking forward to auditions at the beginning of June and can’t wait for all of the wonderful things to come in our next season!
