The New Directions program offers young musicians who play typically classical instruments an opportunity to perform an eclectic mix of musical styles ranging from classic to modern post 20th century which may include rock, jazz, fusion, folk and new age. Improvisation and playing by ear are emphasized. The music is newly composed by our faculty and students each summer. Students and faculty perform in the New Directions large ensemble in the morning, breaking into combos/chamber groups in the afternoon, where students compose and perform their own music. Instruments included in the Classic to Contemporary Division include orchestra strings and woodwinds, tuba, guitar, piano, percussion, guitar and voice.
