Woodwind Day at NYU


A Day in the Life of Woodwind students at NYU Steinhardt

Ever wondered what college would be like as a music student? On Sunday, October 2, students and parents had the opportunity to find out! The event-filled day featured samplings of typical music-based classes including: program meeting, lessons, chamber music, Intro to Electronic Music, and Orchestral Repertoire. They had lunch at a dorm and visited some of NYU’s most famous concert venues. In addition to participating in amazing performances and lectures, they had the opportunity to meet and greet both faculty and students. This was their chance to be a student for a day at NYU Steinhardt's Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions - a world class conservatory within a great university. It all happens at 35 West 4th Street.

This event was free of charge and included lunch for all students, their families, and guests who attended.
