For musicians ages 11-18 with intermediate to advanced proficiency. Students will work with amazing faculty who will instill musicianship, listening skills, leadership and confidence. The Young Artists will also receive masterclasses, coaching sessions and noonday presentations from guest Festival Artists from around the world. All instrumentalists are encouraged and welcome to enroll (strings, woodwinds, brass, guitar, percussion, pianists); however, we do ask that students have at least a year of private instruction before enrolling.
Percussionists: We are doing a special division this year within the Workshop for middle & high school percussion students. Please contact the Director of Education to find out more information!

Placement auditions are for chamber ensemble placements only. Once you register you have secured your place in the Workshop.
Students may audition on 2 instruments (they are placed in 2 chamber ensembles during the Workshop) as long as they have been playing for at least one year on both instruments. Students will be required to prepare the audition material on both instruments. When registering just put down both instruments and other information required on the registration form.
Students will be asked to prepare 2 contrasting solos/etudes of their choice (1 slow and musical / 1 faster and technical). Portions of piece or movements are fine. Both selections should be approximately 1 minute in length. Students will also be asked to do some sight reading.
