Clarion hosts its annual Clarion-Collegium Week, featuring an impressive roster of musicians from The Clarion Orchestra who will lead five masterclasses in strings, winds, harpsichord, and chamber music. The classes are for elementary and high schoolers, college students, and young professionals, at no charge to them. Students are invited by a network of Early Music educators to participate in or to observe the classes from all over the United States. All Clarion-Collegium programming is free and open to the public.
This year, our programming will focus on "Music from Earlier Pandemics" featuring music from Bubonic Plague to the 1918 Flu Pandemic. In addition to masterclasses for musicians, a renowned panel of musicology experts will shed light on the glorious music that was created during those earlier challenging times, and offer their insights about the future of music performance.
Information and applications will be available soon. Students and young professionals who are interested in playing in the master classes, please contact Lauren Ishida at Clarion for reservations and times.
