USD Hosts Band Orchestra and Choral Directors Institute
The institute will include conducting clinics, large ensemble reading sessions, master classes and clinic sessions that focus on a wide variety of teaching subjects for instrumental directors and choral educators.
New at this year’s institute is a dedicated orchestral component. “With the growth of high quality orchestral programs in the Quad-State area, we decided to include clinics that could be beneficial for both band and orchestral directors,” said Luis Viquez, assistant music professor and institute director.
Vijay Singh, an internationally renowned composer and professor of music at Central Washington University, is this summer’s guest choral clinician. Brian Balmages, an award winning composer and conductor, will return as guest clinician for the instrumental side.
Graduate academic credit is available. For additional information, please contact institute directors David Holdhusen and/or Luis Víquez, or visit the Fine Arts’ events and workshops website.
