The 2016 Ohio State University Clarinet Academy was held from June 12 to June 16 on the OSU campus. High school students from all over came together for a week of intense clarinet training with OSU Professor of Clarinet Caroline Hartig. Students participated in daily master classes, lectures with guest artists, small and large ensemble music rehearsals, and even private lessons. Students also had the opportunity to work with current OSU students who were serving as festival counselors. The hard-work was evident in the Clarinet Academy Student Solos Concert in Weigel Hall on Wednesday night. Following the concert, students celebrated with a pizza party. The 2016 OSU Clarinet Academy concluded with a concert featuring the fine-tuned chamber ensembles and clarinet choir.
Information about the 2017 Clarinet Academy will be available soon.
