Faculty will include members of the Atlantic Brass Quintet
plus special guests Jeff Luke (Utah Symphony) and Tim Leopold (Alarm Will Sound).
The heart of the seminar. Four hours of faculty coachings each day, scheduled on a rotating basis so that each quintet works with every faculty member directly twice per week.
Faculty members sit in with participant ensembles to demonstrate concepts discussed in coachings. These sessions are open to observation by other participants.
Participant ensembles give weekly public performances. The Atlantic Brass Quintet also performs two public recitals at the seminar. Some students perform alongside faculty members. All performances are video and audio recorded.
Resident faculty and special guest artists/lecturers offer numerous masterclasses throughout the seminar on a variety of topics.
Weekly Instrument Classes
A special time to hang out with and learn from those who play your instrument.
Your housing fee includes meal plan and access to campus libraries, gyms, and athletic facilities.
Faculty and staff organize frequent social activities on and off campus. Appleton is a bustling social hub along the Fox River. The city's downtown is just steps from campus, offering fine coffee (and more fine coffee), restaurants, breweries, ice cream, art and history museums, walking trails along the river, outdoor markets, and a thriving public street art scene. Appleton also boasts a beautiful nature preserve, a minor league baseball team, a butterfly garden, an indoor trampoline park, a large performing arts center and the largest shopping mall in Wisconsin.
