Clarinet Academy of America, now in its 9th season, is a collaboration between professors Robert DiLutis of the University of Maryland and D. Ray McClellan of the University of Georgia. The 5 days of master classes are hosted annually by both university campuses on a rotating basis. This year, the summer of 2019, the Academy will meet at the beautiful facilities of the Hugh Hodgson School of Music at the University of Georgia, offering a host of training, master classes and performances.
This summer's CAA classes will include a wide variety of subjects and include private lessons and chamber music. Classes will include Reed Making, Phrasing, How to Become a Master Teacher and an Audition Class. Qualified applicants will be either college students, post-college students, professionals, and a select group of high school students.
3nd Annual Chamber Music Contest for 2019: Play with the Teachers. Based on audition recordings, 2 - 4 students will be selected to rehearse and perform in a quintet with Robert DiLutis, D. Ray McClellan and our guest artist on a faculty recital.
