My daughter is a junior violinist in HS playing at the all-state level. She has very good grades and SAT scores and is seeking info from anyone who can recommend great liberal arts colleges that would be strong enough to support her interest in continuing to study the violin and participate in orchestra and chamber groups. She does not want a conservatory, but would like to be challenged musically. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We are looking in the northeast or possibly DC.
Also, how do you go about approaching the schools and determining how interested they are in a talented violinist?
Any thoughts or recommendations?
