      Join the Orford Wind Workshop team for two intensive weeks of wind quintet training.

      This workshop will have participants work and perform as members of a wind quintet, a double wind quintet (dixtuor), and a section quartet. Four quintets (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn) will form the basis of this workshop.

      In addition to chamber music and performance coaching, all participants will have master classes and private lessons with the teacher of their respective instrument. This also includes workshops on various topics, such as: auditions, professional life, career options, musician’s health, and more.

      This is a golden opportunity to evolve in a community that listens to your needs.
