Join us for the 2017 University of Georgia Bassoon and Oboe Symposium on Sunday, February 19, 2017!  We will have a wonderful day full of classes, performances, vendors, and more. Our guest artists this year are Russ deLuna (left), Oboe and English Horn of the San Francisco Symphony, and Sue Heineman (right), Principal Bassoon of the National Symphony Orchestra. In addition to master classes with our guest artists and resident UGA faculty members—Dr. Reid Messich (oboe) and Dr. Amy Pollard (bassoon)—students will also be able to attend reed class or a class on being a college music major, attend the faculty artist recital, and perform with the symposium double reed ensemble. 



We will have a separate master class for beginning students and junior high school students to work on issues unique to starting bassoon and oboe. Students will be able to try out instruments and purchase cane, reeds, instruments, and other accessories from our fantastic vendors: Midwest Musical Imports, Fox Products, Miller Marketing, Oboe Chicago, and McFarland Double Reeds. 

There will be several spots available for students to play in the guest artist and UGA faculty master classes. Register early to reserve a spot!
