What you will learn

Participants will explore a broad range of techniques and repertoire alongside their peers through interactive workshops, performance seminars, and master classes. The symposium will feature multiple faculty concerts, and will culminate in a student concert open to all participants.

Participants will have the opportunity to perform live for their peers in a supportive atmosphere in which open discussion will be encouraged by faculty.

MASTERCLASSES

Each participant will take part in an intensive masterclass with a member of the faculty, an invaluable experience that combines live instruction and coaching with the experience of performing in front of an audience.

INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS

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

BECAUSE MUSIC MATTERS

MUSIC EDUCATION CHANGES LIVES

We provide access to music education to anyone who seeks it, regardless of economic status, ability, ethnicity, or religion, which has a profound impact on individual lives as well as on our entire community.
