We are excited to present our seventh annual Double Reed Day here at the University of South Alabama! The event will take place on Saturday, March 25th, 2017 from 9am-4pm in the the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center. Registration is now open - click here to fill out the online form and reserve your spot!

This year we have invited two guest artists: Dr. Susan Tomkiewicz and Dr. Stephanie Patterson, the double reed faculty members from the Schwob School of Music at Columbus State University. The guest artists will lead master classes, reed making workshops, and give a guest artist recital. There will be opportunities for all participants to make reeds, play double reed chamber music together, and get the opportunity to meet and work with other double reed players throughout the Gulf Coast region. It's a great chance to get to spend time with other oboists and bassoonists (since we are so often few and far between), to learn, commiserate about our reeds, and to further enrich and strengthen our skills and our musicianship. All ages and ability levels are welcome to attend!

Registration for the event is $25, payable when you arrive, which covers admission to all the day's events and recitals, lunch, reed making supplies, and a t-shirt. For more information about the event, click here, or contact Dr. Rebecca Mindock to ask any questions you may have!
