This workshop will be conducted remotely for Summer 2021.
Broadway Winds, which is geared toward advanced high school and college-level woodwind players, allows students to perform, study, and collaborate with NYU Steinhardt faculty and industry professionals who have dedicated their careers to the art of woodwind doubling. This year’s sessions, which will be held virtually from the comfort of your home, will include overviews of individual shows, woodwind orchestration, paths to a successful career, doubling challenges, and equipment for doublers. Throughout the four-day intensive, students will prepare and participate in virtual masterclasses led by woodwind doublers of current Broadway shows. Once Broadway re-opens, and NYU classes resume, you will be able to set up a time to watch a show IN THE PIT with one of the musicians!
Past Broadway Winds presenters have included Rick Heckman (Anastasia), Ed Matthew (The Phantom of the Opera), Dave Noland (SpongeBob SquarePants), Dan Willis (Kinky Boots), Mark Thrasher (Aladdin), and Steve Kenyon (Mean Girls).
Interested students must have access to the internet and a computer with video ability.

Getting a Gig
Please prepare a piece or a few excerpts of your choosing for a minimum of two instruments with which you are proficient and for which you are aiming to be accepted into the program. These excerpts should clearly display many facets of your musicality (e.g. dynamics, styles, articulations). Playing on Broadway requires musicians to play in many styles and deal with many different situations. The goal of this audition is to prove to the panel that you have the versatility it takes to excel in the field. Good luck — we look forward to hearing your video submissions.
