We invite students from around the country for a half-day event featuring a virtual “live” orchestra masterclass facilitated by clinicians Rebecca MacLeod and Scott Laird. During this session, students will experience playing along virtually with a quintet of professional musicians.

The event also includes a synchronous live improvisation clinic with singer-songwriter Shana Tucker, as well as an interactive performance with cross-genre violinist Josh Henderson.

Who Should Attend?

This event is open to students at playing level 3+ (intermediate through advanced middle school students and all high school students, or those who have 2 or more years of playing experience). Students of private studio teachers are also invited to attend. Student participants must be sponsored by an ASTA member.
