Woodwinds, Brass, & Percussion Program in Italy

  • The Woodwinds, Brass, & Percussion program is extensive, intensive. and unique. It is designed to boost students to the next level of playing. The unique aspect of the winds and brass program is that students have the opportunity to explore repertoire that they do not usually get to study at home. Some players may have ensembles with all woodwinds or all brass, and others will play in mixed chamber music groups. A few examples of past repertoire is the Saint-Saens Septet, Op.65 for trumpet, 2 violins, viola, cello, bass, and piano; the Beethoven trios for flute, bassoon, and piano; Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time for clarinet, violin, cello, and piano; the Mozart oboe quartets for oboe, violin, viola, cello; and Eliot Carter's Canonic Suite for four clarinets. The beauty of their surroundings and cultural experience is ideal for artistic growth.

  • We're excited to announce that Conductor Guy Braunstein, the former concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic, will be joining us to conduct the InterHarmony Festival Orchestra in Session II. More info »
