Pacific String Day

In the interest of health and safety, the Conservatory of Music is canceling all public events previously scheduled for the spring 2020 semester. If you have already registered for this event, please email or call 209-946-2418 for a refund. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Pacific String Day will be back in the spring of 2021. High school musicans are invited to join our string faculty and current students for workshops, interactive master classes and performances.

Pacific String Day activities will take place in Faye Spanos Concert Hall and in Buck Hall. A detailed scheduled will be posted closer to the event.

For an opportunity to workshop a concerto movement with a conductor-less chamber orchestra comprised of conservatory faculty and students, participants should register and submit a recorded video audition online. Links will be provided closer to the event.
