2019 Carnegie Hall - Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Invitational

2019 Carnegie Hall - Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Invitational Logo

The Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Invitational, presented by Performing Arts Consultants, offers the opportunity for high school instrumental ensembles to perform in legendary Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall. Our unforgettable 2-day event includes pre-performance clinics and sectionals with top-notch adjudicators and the talented conservatory-trained instrumentalists from Baldwin Wallace Conservatory on Sunday February 10, 2019 at a local school. Monday February 11, 2019 will feature performances from six high school ensembles in the morning and afternoon prior to an amazing performance by the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Symphonic Wind Ensemble (Berea, OH) and Awards Ceremony at 8:00pm in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. Each ensemble will be adjudicated by judges at the top of their field (Soo Han, Brendan Caldwell, Frank Battisti, or similar) and will also receive an on-stage, post-performance clinic at Carnegie Hall. We hope that you will join us in New York City this coming February for this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
