Student Recital Concert:
The students perform solos and small ensemble literature of their choosing that they spend the week preparing. This culminates in a student recital that is open to the public. The faculty choose outstanding performers from this recital to perform at the end of the week concert.
The week ends in a culminating concert featuring the large ensembles as well as chosen student soloists and ensembles from the student recital. The concert is free to the public and is professionally recorded and broadcast over the internet.
