Double reed players

South Carolina Double Reed Day

Double reed players of all ages and abilities are invited to the biennial South Carolina Double Reed Day at USC. You can experience a full day of clinics, reed classes, recitals and master classes for the oboe and bassoon at the fall event. S.C. Double Reed Day at USC takes place every other year.

That day...

Activities and classes for beginning, intermediate and advanced reed players ensure a day full of great learning, listening and playing experiences.

School of Music faculty members host the event, which culminates with a double reed ensemble performance by all participants.

A double reed repair specialist gives free instrument adjustments, minor repairs, major repair consultation and sessions on oboe and bassoon maintenance. Double reed vendors offer instruments, music and accessories.

Students have the option of performing in a master class or attending as an observer. It promises to be a day of fun and learning for oboe and bassoon players of all ages and levels!
