*The week of Masterclasses, ALL YOCJ students will attend their appropriate events, instead of regular rehearsals.

*Also, all Small Ensembles will perform for their clinician (in preparation for the Sat. April 2 concert) DURING the Masterclass.

*Additionally, ALL YOCJ students will have the opportunity to submit video applications to perform a solo in their respective Masterclasses!

*YOCJ Conductors will select a limited number of applicants to perform.

*David Kim will be accepting ALL string instruments in his masterclass: violin, viola, cello, and double bass!

*No piano accompanists will be used in the woodwind, brass, percussion, and saxophone masterclasses.

*YOCJ will provide a piano accompanist for the David Kim Masterclass. The chosen students will first be coached by Mr. Pugh during an assigned 30 minute rehearsal with the pianist, on either Tuesday March 7, 14, or 21st, sometime between 5:30pm and 7pm. More information is coming soon.


*Deadline: Friday, February 25

*Video: Students should prepare of video of themselves performing their intended solo and submit it via this link: YOCJ 2022 Masterclass Application Form

*Please review your video prior to submission for sound and visual issues. *The student should be well-lit, the background should not be distracting, and the viewer should easily be able to see both arms of the student.

*No piano accompanists are needed in the videos.

*YOCJ Conductors will select which students will perform. Decisions are final.
