Master Classes
The Symphony Association also sponsors free master classes and workshops taught by its guest artists as part of their commitment to perform with the Symphony. These two-hour classes vary from intimate sessions with four to six musicians who perform selections critiqued by individual guest artists, to lecture/performance sessions, to panel discussions including advice on developing a performance career, to classes specifically designed to coach student ensemble performers.
In addition to the students and their instructors, other musicians and the public are welcome to attend the sessions free of charge. It’s a great opportunity to see our local young musicians, whose talent and dedication to music are remarkable, interact with world-renowned musicians and educators—and perhaps catch a preview of the artists in performance at the same time.
