Double Reed Camp

June 2 – 5, 2019

Weigel Auditorium

Double reed instruments are unique and require special musical skills. The Double Reed Camp at Ohio State is designed to help high school double reed musicians tackle these skills in a relaxed and collaborative environment. Students will engage in activities that address the fundamental elements of good tone production, overcoming technical obstacles, essentials of reed-making and effective interpretation of music. They will participate in private, small-group and large-ensemble instruction, meet fellow musicians from around the state and enjoy the college experience on the Ohio State campus.
