Double Reed Day at SUNY Fredonia is for Middle and High School oboists and bassoonists to come and spend the day working with the double reed faculty and students in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere.

Joining Double Reed Day this year will be oboist Colin Maier. Maier is currently the oboist for the internationally renowned and critically acclaimed ensemble "Quartetto Gelato" playing 50-70 concerts a year. During that time he has been heard on national radio broadcasts, seen on the BRAVO network and received the 2010 INDIE award for best classical ensemble. Maier brings a playful and enthusiastic energy to his performances and master classes. His participation with Double Reed Day will be truly unique and inspiring. (Maier will give a free recital the night before Double Reed Day, Saturday, October 26 at 8pm in Rosch Recital Hall. Don't miss it!).

The day will include: master classes focusing on both solo performing and the techniques of playing, reedmaking classes focusing on how to adjust reeds so they will work more easily and successfully; coached double reed chamber music reading sessions and a final double reed ensemble performance conducted by special guest, Patricia Ellmauer.

Participants will have the opportunity to visit exhibitors that will be on-site with double reed instruments, double reed music, and supplies available for sale.
