North Coast Winds Virtual Summer Institute
Sunday, June 21st - Friday, June 26, 2020
When: Jun 21, 2020 through June 26, 2:00pm - 12:30pm
Join North Coast Winds, Cleveland's premier professional woodwind quintet, for an interactive and fun week of virtual woodwind instruction and chamber music! Open to flute, oboe, B-flat clarinet, French horn, and bassoon.
In this new, completely virtual format, campers will participate in scheduled activities that will include daily warm-ups, private lessons, staff coached sectionals, and our signature “Spotlight Hour” to engage in fun, broader musical topics. Taking a new approach to collaborative music making, students will form small ensembles and record a piece together using the latest technology. Pieces will be presented during the Friday's Lunch and Listen virtual concert, open to family and friends.
Campers must have the following technological capabilities:
- A laptop, tablet, or desktop that has a reliable internet connection (ethernet connection recommended)
- Access to the video platform Zoom (Camp Director will specify if other platforms are necessary prior to the start of camp.)
- Earbuds or headphones (Bluetooth recommended)
- USB microphone (if accessible)
A virtual welcome/orientation and technology “check in” will be scheduled for Sunday, June 21st from 2:00 – 3:00 pm. The culminating Lunch and Listen presentation will take place on Friday, June 26th at 11:30 am.
