Education & Community

Workshops & Masterclasses

Orpheus musicians share their artistry, expertise, and collaborative approach to music-making through masterclasses, workshops, and residencies.

The love of music and music-making they brought was infectious and engaged my musicians whole-heartedly. The impact on our musicianship was immediate and palpable, and still bears fruit months later as we embark on new pieces...CWO3 Bryan Sherlock, Marine Forces Pacific Band

The workshop was a highlight of our trip for all of my students. One of my more advanced students said that Jim addressed exactly what our group needed to focus on most, and it was helpful for me to see how rehearsals can be run without the excessive control from the conductor, which I’m experimenting with more. Thanks again for the opportunity! Paul Trapkus, Orchestra Director, Silver Creek High School
