Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Miami University of Ohio announce brass institute for young musicians

Posted on: December 2, 2021

In 2022, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra will launch the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Brass Institute, in collaboration with Miami University of Ohio. The institute—directed by CSO Associate Principal Trumpet and Miami University Adjunct Professor of Trumpet Doug Lindsay—will offer two intensive, high-level instruction programs for advanced students of brass instruments, led by musicians from the CSO brass section and Miami University brass faculty. The institute will take place from June 6 to 13, 2022 at Miami University’s Oxford campus. The institute will comprise the High School Scholars Program, designed for advanced high school brass players from southwestern Ohio, northern Kentucky, and east-central Indiana; and the pre-professional Orchestral Training Fellowship, designed to prepare brass players ages 18 to 28 to audition for positions in orchestras. “Our goal is to provide access to instruction at the highest level,” said Lindsay in a press release. “This is how we prepare young players for success.” For more information, click here.
