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.

  • Each student receives two private lessons per week with an internationally-renowned artist faculty member.

  • All participants are preselected into chamber groups and assigned to partners and repertoire choices according to level, matched well in advance. Instrumentalists receive two fourty-five minute chamber coachings per week with an artist faculty member with their chamber group(s).

  • The orchestra rehearses for the duration of the festival, culminating in the final orchestra concert at the Centro Congressi in Acqui Terme. Orchestra assignments will be given at the festival.
