Event Description

Cornell College Summer Flute & Clarinet Camp

An audition is required unless you are studying privately with Rose or Lisa. We welcome musicians of all skills levels. The audition is used to group students according to skill level.  Your auditions should be prepared after you have registered and submitted your program fee. 

Please begin your audition with a brief introduction followed by a one minute performance and two scales. Please email a link to your audition video to jbarnes@cornellcollege.edu no later than June 10. We recommend either Drop Box or Vimeo for video sharing.  You’ll receive your audition results/placement level via email.

Your registration fee is only refundable in the unlikely event that the Flute and Clarinet Camps is cancelled due to low enrollment.
