woodwind Instruments/ Workshop for Brass Instruments
The Wind Instrument
Workshops operate as ensembles of
varying sizes for Woodwinds and Brass. The work concentrates on
preparing chamber works for large ensembles,
performing orchestral pieces and preparing for
professional auditions. Emphasis is placed on
ensemble-playing, intonation, sound production and
understanding different styles.
Rehearsals are held
once a week for two hours with performances at the
end of each semester. The Wind Workshops are core
courses for Wind Instrument performance majors.
Workshop is directed by Head of the Wind &
Percussion Department - Eyal Ein-Habar
Brass Workshop is directed by Michael Slatkin,
principal Horn, IPO.
