Kennesaw State‚ youth symphony partner to offer high school music clinic

KENNESAW‚ Ga. (Feb. 22‚ 2008) −— The Kennesaw State University Department of Music will offer its second annual music clinic for high school students with the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra June 8−13 in the new Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center at Kennesaw State. The clinic offers a comprehensive music experience for student instrumentalists‚ pianists‚ and guitarists. Registration is open through May 10.

Students will interact with 24 members of Kennesaw State’s music faculty‚ many of whom perform with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra‚ Atlanta Opera Orchestra or Cobb Symphony Orchestra. In addition to having master classes on their instrument and playing in large and small ensembles‚ the students will study music theory‚ history‚ conducting‚ and improvisation.

Partnering with the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra program‚ in residence at KSU and now the largest youth orchestra program in the Southeast‚ provides a vibrant atmosphere where students can immerse themselves in music. The week culminates with student chamber music and large ensemble performances on Friday‚ June 12. Rising seniors who participate in the clinic will be considered for music scholarships at Kennesaw State.

“The summer music clinic connects our exceptional music faculty with talented students throughout the state‚” said Peter Witte‚ chair of the KSU Department of Music. “This will be the Clinic's first year in our new home‚ the Bailey Performance Center. We're looking forward to making music with these students in one of the finest concert halls in the region. The smiles on their faces when they first experience music in our hall are a joy to see.”

The registration fee for the clinic is $275 and includes lunch each day. For more information about the clinic or to register online‚ click the music clinic link on the department’s website at www.kennesaw.edu/music.
