We hope you’ll join us at our CSU Marching Band Webinar to talk about Preseason Camp. During the webinar, you will receive an overview of our preseason camp, meet marching band faculty and student leadership, find out more about arriving on campus, and have an opportunity to ask questions.
Spend a week honing your craft on the Colorado State University campus, located at the base of the Rocky Mountains! Auditioned students will perform a solo in our beautiful Recital Hall and present a musical revue alongside current CSU students. Participants will also take voice lessons with CSU faculty, participate in workshops, masterclasses, and talk backs including “Conquering the College Audition.”
At the Lift Clarinet Academy, we want you to arrive with a goal and leave with a sense of achievement. Hosted annually by Dr. Wesley Ferreira (Colorado State University) and Dr. Jana Starling (Western University), the focus is on the individual musical, technical, and artistic goals of each participant.
This program includes the most famous music ever composed for organ and orchestra, including the glorious “Organ Symphony” of Camille Saint-Saëns. Todd Wilson (Cleveland Orchestra), Ken Cowan (Rice University), and Joel Bacon (Colorado State University) will play First Methodist Church’s famed the Marcussen Organ in this spectacular event.
The Junior Lift Clarinet Academy is an action-packed five-day journey, designed for students ages 13-18 who are seeking to expand their clarinet study within a supportive and engaging musical environment.
Organized and hosted each year at Colorado State University by clarinet professor Dr. Wesley Ferreira and his graduate clarinet students, the Junior Lift Clarinet Academy is nationally renowned.
