STEW Announcement!

The Southeast Tuba Euphonium Workshop (STEW) will take place June 25-20 at the University of Arkansas. The Southwest Tuba-Euphonium Workshop (STEW) began in 2013 at the University of Georgia, led by a small, tightly knit faculty intent upon providing an educational, enjoyable, practical, and most of all musical workshop for collegiate tuba and euphonium students. Attendees of STEW have hailed from numerous universities and backgrounds, and comprise music education and performance majors as well as graduate students. A major focus of the workshop is on chamber music, primarily in a quartet setting. Students will also play in daily master classes and take two private lessons during the week with STEW faculty. Faculty will also present topical master classes and each day’s activities will conclude with a faculty recital, capped off by a faculty chamber music recital at the end of the week. Student quartets will also perform in a concert at week’s end.

The primary mission of STEW is to teach musical artistry from the perspective of the renowned faculty. Practical guidance on careers in music for tuba and euphonium players is also a major focal point. Finally, STEW offers an immersive experience for young musicians to interact with like-minded colleagues both musically and socially.

Stay tuned for registration information!
