“The Woodwind Day is a special event for our CU woodwind and horn students, as well as local middle school and high school students,” Dr. Lisa McArthur, professor of music, theory and flute at Campbellsville University, said.
The students will have the opportunity to perform in a full woodwind ensemble, work with and for professionals who specialize on their instrument, perform in and listen to concerts, attend a panel discussion about “College and Careers in Music” and shop with vendors, according to McArthur.
