THE BOLLYWOOD STRINGS PROJECT OVERVIEW:

“Bollywood Strings” offers driving grooves that break and turn to spin festive, celebratory string dances. As with the Klezmer, Celtic, and Newtown Peace Anthem Flexi-scores (Flexi-Scores: What are they? What can they do for my string program?), there is a Junior (MS) version and a Senior (HS) version. Each score can be performed as a stand-alone, and they interlock for an all-level school performance or county festival. The Junior and Senior electric violin parts interlock as well (or the Senior version can be performed by a HS student or area professional with your MS orchestra or visa versa.)

Junior and senior electric violin parts come with the score. If your program doesn’t already have an electric instrument, a premiere electric violin is available through the NS Design Loaner Program. **The electric violin junior and senior parts can also be played acoustically or into a mic by one or more students to create a richer acoustic or electric tapestry.

• PERFORMANCE VIDEO: play this amazing video of pictures from India intertwined with brief glimpses of Julie Lyonn Lieberman playing the electric violin part on an NS Design violin (filmed at D’Addario’s video studio) to add some Indian spice to your string orchestra’s performance of Bollywood Strings. It is available with and or without the electric violin part.•
