The clinics will be taught by Christopher Newport’s outstanding faculty. In addition, students are invited to perform on an informal recital, attend a faculty/alumni percussion recital, and perform on the culminating concert by the Institute’s percussion ensemble.


All high school rising freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible to participate.
