MASTER CLASS and CONCERT WITH DR. TOMAS COTIK
PSU violin professor Dr. Tomas Cotik will offer a free master class at PSU, LH 326, on November 14 at 5 p.m. Any student interested in participating can send a 3 minute video to him at email@example.com. There is no charge, either for participants or for those wishing to attend as observers.
In addition, on February 9, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. in the frame of the Portland Winter Lights Festival 2019, the central facade of Lincoln Hall will become a canvas for the projected silhouette of violinist Tomas Cotik as he performs works by Johann Sebastian Bach. Spectators passing by and congregating in front of the building will hear the music through loudspeakers and see the moving silhouette projected on the full height of the building.
The work’s title, Ombra Musici, or “Musician’s Shadow”, directly references the visual content of the work, connects to the Italian basis for classical music description and alludes to a shared ephemerality and capacity for augmentation and amplification between shadow play and large-scale projection.
Concurrently inside Lincoln Recital Hall on February 9, Tomas Cotik will present a solo violin recital presenting a selection of his latest project, a recording of Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for violin solo. This concert is free of charge.
