These are the list of masterclasses and concerts this weekend in Ithaca.
First on Saturday the Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings will give masterclasses on practically every instrument. There will even be a conducting masterclass with H Bob Reynolds a legend in the Band world. All masterclasses will be in Lincoln Hall saturday afternoon.
Then they will give a concert at the Statler Auditorium on Saturday evening at 8 pm.

Sunday at 3 pm is the Festival Chamber Orchestra concert featuring world premieres of four Cornell Composers;
Kay Rhie, Nobet Palej, Sean Shepherd, and Spencer Topel.
I will be conducting the concert.
It should be a great concert. The concert is free and open to the public and it will be in Barnes Hall.
