Playing in Franklin College’s String Ensemble provides students a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and build community, while experiencing the joy of making music. Through the study and performance of the string orchestra literature, students will continue to build their technical facility, listening skills, and musical expression. All members of the String Ensemble also have the opportunity to study and perform chamber music each semester, which further develops of each student’s musicianship.
Dr. Honer has taught strings, coached chamber music, conducted orchestras, and taught beginning string classes at both the pre-college and collegiate levels for over twenty years and her students have gone on to have successful teaching and performing careers of their own. Prior to joining Franklin College’s faculty, she taught at Vincennes University and the University of Cincinnati. She also enjoys an active performing career, as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player. At age 17, Dr. Honer made her Carnegie Hall debut and has since performed concerts throughout the United States and Europe.
