We are so thankful for everyone who auditioned. This was the largest and most competitive audition pool we've had yet!

We have a great two weeks planned for the fellows! Our classes will feature some of the top artists in our field.

They will cover topics including mock audition prep, accessories, West African Drumming, chamber/orchestral connections, timpani, and Latin percussion. In addition to masterclasses, fellows will be performing repertoire by Akiho, Reich, Eriksson, Kopetzki, and traditional West African music.

We will have two concerts this year and we'd love to see you there!
