Bluegrass music is more than a toe-tapping good time at Denison, it’s also one of the first—and finest—academic programs in the nation.
More than 60 student musicians and several Music Department professors packed their bags, jumped on a plane, and walked into a whirlwind that carried them through three Chinese cities in ten days. Performing in Shanghai, Xi’an and Beijing, the group introduced sounds, voices, and instruments to audiences that, in many cases, had never experienced American music.
Denison University’s Annual Bluegrass Festival features several renowned performers as well as workshops and rehearsal experiences to showcase the very best of bluegrass.
We would like to use this festival as a way of introducing the Denison University Woodwind Department to you and your woodwind students.
A program in which positive musical learning partnerships are created among faculty, students, and their parents/practice partners so that children can grow into loving and respectful individuals who will have a positive effect on their world.
