The event will begin on Friday, September 12 with afternoon master classes and an evening recital in the Daniel Recital Hall, and will continue on Saturday with a full day of rehearsals and clinics, culminating in an evening performance of ’cello choir music in McAlister Auditorium. Instruments will be on display from sponsoring shops.
