Join us for an afternoon of English Horn study with Rocky Ridge faculty member Jason Lichtenwalter (see full bio below). We are pleased to offer this online English horn masterclass again after a very successful presentation last winter.

  • Only three masterclass participants will be selected. The three masterclass participants will get 30 minutes to perform and receive feedback.
  • Participants must be advanced high school or college students.
  • Auditing of the masterclass and subsequent workshop is open to anyone who wants to learn more about the English horn.
  • Masterclass and subsequent workshop will take place over Zoom.
