Bar Harbor Brass Week is an intensive educational and performance experience for select college and high school brass musicians, sponsored by the Mark Woolman Horner Music Education Fund.
A small group of high school, college, and pre-professional participants are selected to form brass choirs and chamber ensembles to prepare for several performances in Bar Harbor. Daily activities include rehearsals, coachings, masterclasses, and private lessons–all led by a prestigious faculty of many of the finest brass musicians and educators in the country.
All of this takes place on the campus of the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine.
Bar Harbor Brass Week, a recipient of the 2014 Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce President’s Award, will host its 15th and final camp in June 2015. This Brass Week Finale will not stop the faculty from returning in June 2016, to celebrate Acadia’s Centennial.
Faculty and some alumni plan to return to Bar Harbor in the summer of 2016 to perform a special concert, featuring music that will celebrate and highlight nature’s power and beauty, as well as a special piece commissioned for Acadia.
