Neridah Oostenbroek

A new work for string orchestra by Australian composer, Neridah Oostenbroek. A Hootenanny is a Scottish word meaning a party or celebration. Originating in the Appalachian area of the United States, a region settled by Scottish immigrants, it refers to a gathering where folk music is played in a celebratory atmosphere. This piece certainly captures the spirit of a Hootenanny with an infectious opening melody. The piece uses various textures and techniques including pizzicato and harmonics to create interest in all parts. Hootenanny is a fun and light-hearted piece and is sure to become a hit with your string group.

Neridah has been teaching strings and classroom music in Brisbane for over 20 years. She learnt both violin and piano from a young age and went on to achieve her LMus A in both instruments. She graduated with a BMus (violin) and a Master of Philosophy in Violin Performance from University of Queensland under Sprios Rantos and also has a Graduate Diploma of Secondary Education. Neridah regularly performs as a freelance violinist with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and also with the Qld Pops Orchestra. She regularly plays in chamber music groups in Brisbane, including her string quartet Vici Strings, and works as a piano accompanist playing for AMEB exams and for RAD ballet exams. Neridah is passionate about music education. She is an active member of the Qld branch of the Australian String Association. She currently teaches violin and viola at several schools within Brisbane and also teaches at her private home studio.
