Youth Day Master Classes

 

 

 

The Yavapai Symphony Association presents annual Youth Day – Master Classes to area students.

Musicians of the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra participate in musical instrument master classes at the local high schools and middle schools in the Prescott area.

This year’s instructions on April 24, 2017 included presentations in the violin, bass, viola, cello, oboe, trumpet, french horn, trombone, tuba, clarinet, saxophone, percussion, and flute.  This event was partially funded by a FY2016 Acker grant.

Orchestra members give students valuable tips in technique, performance, and instrument maintenance.

The next Youth Day Master Class will be held in Spring 2018.  If your school is interested in participating in this event, contact the YSA office at (928) 776-4255.  This event is partially funded by a FY2017 Acker Grant.
