HPP Students Looking Forward to Summer Experiences

Here’s more great news about students in our Historical Performance Practice program . . .

Graduate students from the CWRU Historical Performance Practice program were accepted to the inaugural Berwick Academy for Historical Performance this summer.  The Academy held auditions nationwide, stopping in Cleveland this past November. Oboist, Luke Conklin, violinists, Cynthia Black, Karin Cuellar-Rendon, Alice Culin-Ellison, Allison Monroe, and trumpeters, Dominic Favia (CIM), and Justin Bland (M.A., CWRU 10′) will head to Oregon this June to work with prestigious faculty including conductor Maasaki Suzuki of Bach Collegium Japan, Artist-in-Residence and Artistic Advisor Monica Huggett, and CWRU’s own Lecturer and baroque oboist, Debra Nagy.

A select group of HPP students have also been invited to take part in the Smithsonian Symposium on Historically Informed Performance in American Higher Education in May, and in Early Music America’s Young Performers Festival at the Boston Early Music Festival this June.
