What a great idea! While this is its third year it’s the first I’ve heard about it.
The Ohio State University School of Music and OBOHIO present the third annual Double Reed Honors Invitational, Saturday, May 19, 2012.
Each spring, 12 to 15 high-school age bassoonists and oboists are invited to come to the School of Music for a unique experience in double reed performance and instruction. Students will begin the day with a master class with professionals and will engage in intense rehearsals with OSU undergraduate and graduate double reed students leading up to a recording session of their work.
Participants will be selected from those nominated by school or private instructors. We invite teachers to nominate students for this event using the downloadable form below. Students invited to participate will attend the day at no charge and will receive a copy of the completed recording. Lunch will be provided for all invitees.
