CLASS

Woodwinds

In addition to the bands and orchestra, students in the woodwind area have the opportunity to perform in Georgia Southern’s Flute Choir, Clarinet Quartet, Southern Quartet, and Southern Saxophones, in addition to mixed-chamber ensembles. Each of these groups is active on campus and in the community. Woodwind students also participate in the Georgia Music Educators’ Association All College Band and have won the Georgia Music Teachers’ Association Spring Auditions and the Georgia Southern Symphony’s concerto competition. Students also attend summer music programs such as the Aria Music Fest, Wild Acres, Clarinetopia, Shell Lake Fine Arts Camp, Interlochen, and the World Youth Wind Orchestra Project.

Members of the woodwind faculty are active performers with area orchestras, in solo and chamber music recitals, and at national and international conferences such as the International Clarinet Festival, the World Saxophone Congress, the National Flute Association, the North American Saxophone Alliance, and the Festival of Women Composers International. Each year, prominent artists such as Eugene Rousseau, the Verdehr Trio, and the Zagreb Saxophone Quartet are guests for performances and master classes.
