Area Percussion Ensembles (Junior High through Collegiate) are welcome to sign-up for a ½ hour performance/clinic with DePaul Percussion Faculty members Mike Green and Ian Ding. Space is limited from 9am-12pm in two rooms, including our Concert Hall and Orchestra Rehearsal Room. Initially, each school will only be allowed one slot to accommodate as many schools as possible. Schools may perform as many pieces as they like, but please know that the more performance time, the less clinic time will be available. All clinic rooms are open for DOP attendees to sit in and watch as many schools perform as they would like.
Dana Hall, Director of Jazz studies at DePaul, will be offering a jazz workshop in the morning from 9am-12pm in the new jazz performance hall. At 9am, Dana will give a clinic on techniques for successful performance in a jazz combo. Starting at 10am, Dana will provide the opportunity for area jazz combos to perform selections for him and receive a clinic. Those drummers who would like to participate and don't have a combo to bring along can still play from a pre-approved list of tunes (DePaul will provide current students to fill out the combo). Space is extremely limited to provide adequate time to performing combos. All combo performances are open for all DOP attendees to drop in and watch/learn.
Interested students who would like to perform individually for DePaul Faculty members Eric Millstein and/or Cynthia Yeh can do so in 15-minute slots from 9am-12pm. Students can play solo marimba, xylophone, snare drum, or excerpts. All rooms are open to any ILPAS registrant during the event to observe.
