AYPO Brass Bash!
Sylvia Alimena, Director
Join us Friday, March 9 for the 2nd Annual Brass Bash! Open to brass players in grades 6-12, the AYPO Brass Brass provides an opportunity for students to work individually and collectively with recognized coaches on concertos, etudes and excerpts of your choice and also excerpts that will be a part of the AYPO audition in June.
We'll start the evening at 6:00 p.m. with a short performance by the AYPO brass sections of one of our favorite works for brass ensemble. Then we'll invite all participants to join us in a reading of music for brass choir. Following the brass choir readings, AYPO brass staff and special guests will hold a master class for each instrument group, during which they will coach you on your favorite etude or concerto and will also help prepare the group of participants for a successful AYPO audition in June. Those wishing to perform in the master class should clearly indicate this on the registration form. The evening concludes with a full brass reading of the 'Great Gate of Kiev' from Pictures at an Exhibition, followed by conversation with current musicians and artistic staff over pizza and beverages.
Upon completed registration, all participants will receive their brass ensemble reading music by email.
This event is FREE, though advance registration is required. Registration Deadline: March 2, 2018.
