Arrival and First Day
Arrival time is between 12:00-1:30 on Saturday, July 22 at the Peabody campus for registration, room check-in, and a faculty and staff meet-and-greet.
The faculty will present a short concert at 2:00 to which all are invited. After their program, each of you plays for the faculty so that you can be assessed for chamber group placement. Dinner follows. That evening all students will get together to play in the Bassoon Band.
