Auditioned Programs for Recorder Players
Virtuoso Recorder Seminar July 16-23, 2017 The Virtuoso Recorder Seminar is a multi-track, auditioned program for serious young recorder players, from high-school students through college and conservatory players and those just starting a career. Small classes give close contact between students and faculty and provide the opportunity for rapid and intensive learning. Components include masterclass, technique, ensembles and special topics, plus opportunities to play Renaissance music on a matched consort of recorders. This is an ideal program for recorder players on their way to a career in music, as well as for those who just want to deepen their skills while meeting others who share their interest and enthusiasm.
