Spectrum Brass Seminar

Spectrum Brass Seminar

After rave reviews from past participants in our program, Spectrum Brass Seminar returns to Bay View in 2017 thanks to the support of Neil and Marsha Bidwell as we seek to create the most comprehensive brass quintet training program in the country. An unparalleled opportunity to learn, study, perform, and collaborate while soaking in the sandy beaches of northern lower Michigan. This exciting collaboration pairs the groundbreaking Spectrum Brass Quintet with the oldest chamber music festival in the U.S. The festival is a Chautauqua and features a variety of professional and student performances throughout the season from brass quintet to large brass with percussion, complemented with lessons or coachings daily.

Pre-formed quintets will receive some preference in terms of casting and scholarship, but individual musicians wanting to apply will be matched with a group of similarly-able players. Scholarship IS available for all students. For program details, click here.
