Workshops

MasterclassesWhenever possible we offer music students an opportunity to work directly with Symphony musicians in a collaborative workshop. These events are tailored to the needs of the students. For more information contact Allan Gaskin.


Redge Craig Memorial Workshop

This free, interactive instrumental workshop is held annually at a school in Nova Scotia in memory of Redge Craig, a social worker and mentor to many people. The workshop’s goal is to connect the Symphony’s orchestra members with aspiring young musicians, particularly those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn from a professional mentor.

Our 2011 workshop teamed up percussion students at Fairview Junior High in Halifax with percussionist D’Arcy Gray, while our 2012 workshop was provided by Mary Lee and Christine Feierabend for students of the Annapolis West High School Band program. In the spring of 2013, David Parker presented a workshop for students at Rockingstone Heights School in Spryfield.

• School and/or ensemble name
