Instrument Information

Participants are responsible for bringing their own instruments (this includes acoustic bass and all larger instruments except piano) and any necessary equipment (strings, mouthpieces, reeds, etc.). You will want to bring a notebook and staff paper; music stands are provided. Bass players will find a wheel helpful.

The Institute accepts young artists playing violin, viola, cello, bass (double-bass/string), piano, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, French horn and tuba. Enrollment in the institute may be limited due to ensemble instrumentation.

If you are traveling to Saratoga Springs by air, please check with your airline to be aware of any flight restrictions concerning your instruments.
