It will be a cold weekend but plenty of music making to keep you warm. Allow extra time for driving. There will be a concession stand with HOT coffee and other goodies with all money going to support the workshop.  There will be an amazing faculty recital at 1 pm on Saturday and two advanced students will play a concerto with orchestra on Sunday at 4:15pm.

Jeremy Dittus, a popular favorite from 2 years ago, returns to teach Dalcroze Eurhythmics this year for the entire workshop!  The amazing performer and teacher, Jonathan Tsay, will also be returning.  Duet class with Dr. Betty Mallard is also an option this year and students who take the Advanced Duet class will perform on the Student Recitals.  Be sure to make time to stay for the Concerto Concert on the afternoon of the last day of the workshop.  2 students will perform a piano solo accompanied by orchestra!
