Conservatory Summer WORKSHOPS

July 10, 2021 (Keyboard, Strings)

BW Conservatory Summer Workshops are one-day intensive opportunities for high school students to experience focused musical training at Baldwin Wallace’s nationally acclaimed Conservatory of Music. Led by Baldwin Wallace University faculty, students will spend their day in rehearsals, sectionals, and masterclasses with an emphasis on preparing for their college audition and future musical pursuits.

Small workshop sizes offer students the chance to gain individualized attention and guidance as they engage directly with Conservatory faculty members. Each workshop day will also feature a variety of opportunities for parents to learn about the college music program audition process, financial aid process, and the opportunity to engage one-on-one with admissions staff.
