Dubbed “The Les Paul of The Violin World” by PBS, the Juilliard-trained violist (he attended on full scholarship) is the inventor of the Viper Electric Violin. Mark Wood rose to fame as string master and founding member of the internationally acclaimed Trans Siberian Orchestra.
A successful solo artist and published author, Wood’s absolute passion is music education.
His innovative program Electrify Your Strings (EYS) – now in its 17th year – is an intensive rock and roll workshop for school music education departments that boosts student self-esteem and motivation and helps raise money for music education.
Three districts are involved in this collaboration: Hingham Middle School Orchestra, Qualters Middle School Orchestra and our host,
Easton Middle School Orchestra.
There will be about 200 students involved in this exciting workshop, which culminates in a rock concert June 10th at 7:30pm at OAHS.
