Come join fellow double reed players for a week of music, learning more about the oboe and bassoon, and FUN!
The camp provides instruction for high school aged oboists and bassoonists in an enjoyable and challenging, yet very supportive environment. All aspiring double reed musicians are welcomed! Daily experiences include access to live, online masterclasses with guest artists, reed sessions, workshops on special topics, small group work, chamber music sessions, "hangout" times, and faculty performances. Tuition also includes individual lessons for all participants.
Due to the COVID19 pandemic, the UWEC Double Reed Camp is going VIRTUAL. But we're not lamenting this change - in fact, we're shouting from the rooftops that this will be the BEST CAMP YET!
