June 6th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Space is still available for area students who wish to participate in the Summer Music Academy hosted by Frostburg State University’s Department of Music from Sunday, July 10, through Saturday, July 16.

The academy was created to promote classical music education and the goal is to develop individual musicianship for string, woodwind, brass and piano instrumentalists in a supportive environment. During the one-week workshop, each attendee will experience instruction from FSU music department faculty members and world-renowned guest artists, including members of the Vienna Philharmonic, Canadian Brass, Boston Symphony Orchestra and National Symphony Orchestra.

Academy activities will feature masterclasses from FSU faculty and guest artists, evening faculty performances, chamber music coaching, outdoor activities in the beautiful setting of the Allegheny Mountains, the Alexander Technique and exposure to internationally renowned musicians, soloists and teachers.

The academy will be no larger than 60 students. Those above the age of 15 are encouraged to enroll. All skill levels are welcome and a variety of price options are available to suit everyone’s needs.
