AYO Summer Masterclass Series
AYO SUMMER MASTERCLASS SERIES 2021
The Asian Youth Orchestra is happy to announce the launch of the Summer Masterclass Series 2021 for young musicians in Asia. The classes, which will be held virtually via zoom, will be offered by the distinguished AYO international artist-faculty. This will be a great opportunity to work with a wonderful international roster of artists and to “meet” your fellow AYOers.
Classes will provide students with opportunities to perform before the faculty, refine techniques, and study further the orchestral audition repertoire. Classes focusing on interesting and important technical topics such as reeds-making will also be offered.
