Program Description

Bassoon and oboe students between the ages of 13 and 19 are invited to attend the third annual IDRS Double Reed Teen Camp from August 4-9. This camp will be hosted by the NYU Steinhardt Music Department and will take place on the NYU campus in New York’s Greenwich Village. At this camp you will meet young double reed musicians from around the world, and you will work with world-class musicians through reed making, private and ensemble coaching, and performance opportunities.

The tuition includes teen-only master classes, double reed ensembles, group activities, and attendance at the conference and concerts. Participants will make new friends with other double reed musicians who share the same passion for the bassoon and oboe through four days of immersion in the music and artistic joy that will be the IDRS 2014 Conference.
