In lieu of a Student Showcase in the lobby of the hall, our friends at The Governor’s School for the Arts recorded a performance for you.
The Instrumental Music Department of the Governor’s School for the Arts offers professional training in performance, while encouraging each student’s personal development and artistic expression. The primary focus of the program is classical and jazz repertoire. Students perform in ensembles, large and small. Chamber music and jazz combos are central to the program. Classical musicians perform in orchestras, both chamber and full, and perform for opera, dance, and other collaborative performances. Jazz students also perform in the GSA Big Band. Students receive private lessons on their primary instrument from the area’s finest instructors. Comprehensive classes in music theory, music literature, technique, and performance form the backbone of the academic curriculum. Composition, audio engineering, accompaniment, movement, and improvisation are some examples of supplemental courses also available. For the career-minded instrumentalist, the program is designed to prepare for auditions to prestigious colleges and conservatories. For more information, visit gsarts.net
