The 2018 Workshop will take place on Monday, October 29th.

After five years of great success, OCU is once again offering and opportunity for your students who are auditioning at first round All State auditions to get some final preparation help. The event will take place on the OCU campus where your students will get opportunities to work with OCU faculty and graduate students as they prepare for their auditions the following weekend. Every instrument will have a dedicated session for their preparation for the audition materials. In addition, clinicians will help students with successful edition strategies including managing performance anxiety and preparing for sight-reading. The event will close with your students in a side-by-side rehearsal with members of the OCU Wind Philharmonic.

In addition to the student audition clinics, Dr. Matthew Mailman is once again offering opportunities for attending directors to conduct the OCU Wind Philharmonic in a clinic session. Each condoctor will have an opportunity to conduct, receive feedback, and be video recorded in a final performance. Each conductor will receive individual feedback from an OCU faculty member following his or her conducting session. As there are limited spaces for this portion of the event, conducting opportunities will be assigned according to the receipt of your registration.
