Institute - Schedule

July 17-23, 2016: Scoring for Strings

We think no challenge is too difficult if you have the right help and a plan. Our staff and faculty are the help you will need. The plan is "the schedule." 

In advance, online:

  • Monthly online composers forums on orchestration, writing for orchestra, composing discussions 
  • Keep up with the archive of the online chats 
  • Find out what you know about music theory (coming soon

At the Institute:

  • Music theory class 8-10 every morning
  • Composing time and lessons from 10am until 4pm every day
  • Salon with a guest artists everyday at 4pm
  • Special evening activities throughout the week
    • Readings of student works by professional ensemble on Monday evening
    • Ice Cream and Burgers at Annie's Parlor on Tuesday or Wednesday
    • First rehearsal of all the student compositions on Wednesday night 
  • Rehearsals start on Thursday and continue through Friday 
  • Festival Salons at 9am and 1pm on Saturday.
