KU Woodwind & Brass Day

Monday, November 18, 2019.

The Kutztown University Department of Music invites all high-school-age woodwind, brass musicians, and their teachers are invited to the annual Woodwind and Brass Day. Join us on Monday, November 18, 2019, for this all-day event. Please note, this day is designed so that directors are not required to be in attendance.

Based on your feedback, we have greatly simplified our event to focus more on ensemble playing. To make the event as accessible as possible, we eliminated the event fee, t-shirts and made lunch optional. Students may choose to purchase lunch ($9) when they register or bring their own lunch. This event will be starting later to allow ample time to arrive on campus; with registration starting at 8:30 AM and warm-ups beginning at 9:00 AM.


Register HERE for this year’s Woodwind and Brass Day, or text “WWBRASS” to 610-222-5973.  Please feel free to contact Dr. Aileen Razey at razey@kutztown.edu or 484-646-4349 to help answer any questions or concerns.

 We are looking forward to another exciting Woodwind and Brass Day event!
