Familiarity with the pieces in advance is recommended. Rehearsal tracks will be provided. 1 CEU credit hour available. Tickets are free, but must be reserved at Brown Paper Tickets .
The exciting repertoire chosen for the festival is — Sikiliza by Sally Albrecht, Music Changes the World by Jim Papoulis, Hey Ba Ba Rebop – Arr. by Steve Zegree and …one surprise piece we will learn together at the festival!
