International students to present string recital at NSU

​ABERDEEN, S.D. – At 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 6, in the large ensemble room in the Johnson Fine Arts Center, 22 Northern State University international students will present a string recital as their culminating event.

Students and members of the community are invited to this one-hour program, which will feature the beginning and intermediate string ensembles performing works such as Variations on Twinkle, Twinkle; Can-Can; Lightly Row; Sakura; Minuet in D; and Old Joe Clark.


The more advanced students will perform the first movement of Vivaldi’s Violin Concerto in A Minor, Mozart’s Tafelmusik, and a Canonic Sonata movement by Georg Philip Telemann.


The Beginning and Intermediate Strings program was begun nine years ago by Robert Vodnoy, orchestra director and professor of strings at NSU. The program is assisted by the graduate assistant in strings, who is currently Ricky Faflak.


Many of the students in the program have musical backgrounds and may have played piano or a woodwind instrument, but most began studying a string instrument when coming to NSU. Several students had played violin in their middle school or high school in South Korea or China, and were able to resume studying during their one or two semesters here.
