OK, so maybe your high school or college son or daughter won’t front a band as popular as Jethro Tull was during the 1970s. But the Benedictine University Woodwind Chamber Music Workshop can help them grow both musically and personally. The Benedictine University Woodwind Chamber Music Workshop sponsored by the Department of Music is a two-day event from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 18 and Friday, June 19. The workshop is open to high school and college students who play the flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon or French horn. Activities will include master’s classes, recitals, chamber rehearsals, techniques classes, instrument repair, lunch both days in the Krasa Student Center Dining Room and an opportunity to meet new people who share a love of music. The faculty includes flutist Anne Kreft, a member of the New Philharmonic, DuPage Opera Theatre and Trio Caprice; clarinetist Andrea DiOrio, who has performed with the Lyric Opera and Grant Park Symphony; oboist Alicia Cordoba Tait, who has performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra; bassoonist Amy Rhodes; and French Horn player Jerry Beck. The cost of the workshop is $175. For more information, call DiOrio at (630) 829-6321 or e-mail her at adiorio@ben.edu.
