What you will learn

Participants will explore a broad range of techniques and repertoire alongside their peers through a regimen of interactive workshops, ensemble rehearsals, guided practice sessions, and master classes. The program will kick off with a faculty concert on the evening of Wednesday, July 13, and will culminate in a concert featuring all participants on Sunday afternoon.

INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS

Faculty will lead workshops exploring diverse musical genres, playing techniques, and performance practice where participants will participate in discussion and practical application of musical concepts on their instruments.

GUIDED PRACTICE
