Clinic Day (Fri, Apr 20)

Each school orchestra will have 60-75 minutes of active clinic time with each of our professional conductors: once in the morning at the first location with the first conductor, and then again in the afternoon at the second location with the second conductor. When not on stage, young musicians are encouraged to watch and listen from the audience so as to learn from the other clinics; orchestras may also use that time to rehearse as needed.
