Pacific String Day

We are looking forward to Pacific String Day in spring of 2021. However, due to unpredictable nature of COVID-19 situation, this event is currently pending. Please, check here for updates.

High school musicans are invited to join our string faculty and current students for a day of workshops, interactive master classes and performances at the Conservatory of Music.

Pacific String Day activities will take place in Faye Spanos Concert Hall and in Buck Hall. A detailed scheduled will be posted closer to the event.

For an opportunity to workshop a concerto movement with a conductor-less chamber orchestra comprised of conservatory faculty and students, participants should register and submit a recorded video audition online. Links will be provided closer to the event.
