Fall 2020 AU Woodwind Day
We are excited to host this virtual event full of all things woodwind! From the comfort of your own home, you will be able to connect and interact with master artist-teachers, AU music students, and other woodwind enthusiasts from near and far. The event is open to all ages and all ability levels.
It is our pleasure to say that we are hosting the 2020 AU Woodwind Day for FREE! This year has been full of many hardships and uncertainty, and though this is a small gesture, we want to open our virtual doors to as many people as possible free of charge.
