WOODWINDS AND HORN DAY 2017 with Mesa Windsmesa winds

Saturday 25, 2017


Please join us for the brand-new CMU Woodwinds and Horn Day on Saturday, February 25, 2017. This year the CMU Department of Music combines several instrumental events into one big day with many great opportunities, including solo & ensemble coaching, combined woodwind and horn ensemble, and an afternoon concert! All participants will perform in the combined ensemble joined by CMU music majors and faculty.

The CMU music faculty will work with students who wish to play their solo or ensemble pieces. It is a perfect opportunity for students preparing audition or contest pieces. Early registration is recommended for any student(s) wishing to perform for coaching.

Mesa Winds, the CMU Faculty Woodwind Quintet, will open the afternoon concert and the combined Student Ensemble will close the concert. It will be a fun Saturday at the CMU Department of Music, where participants can meet and work with fellow players who share similar passions!
