Entrepreneurship Class with the Rushes Ensemble

2:00-3:30 pm, Sunday, November 24, 2013. Stamps Auditorium, 1226 Murfin Avenue, Ann Arbor, North Campus, University of Michigan

The seven members of this unique ensemble hold multiple university teaching positions, they’ve played with countless orchestras and chamber music ensembles, and have each made a mark in the commissioning, publishing, performance and/or distribution of new music for bassoon. Add to that skills in improvisation, music technology, robotics and arts administration, and you have the makings of a rich discussion on many aspects of musical entrepreneurship. This class is free and open to the public. 

Bassoon Master Class

3:30-4:30 pm, Sunday, November 24, 2013. Stamps Auditorium, 1226 Murfin Avenue, Ann Arbor, North Campus, University of Michigan. Free and open to the public.
