Performance Opportunities

Each member of the Southern Miss Clarinet Studio has the opportunity to audition for the Southern Miss Clarinet Choir, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Winds, Concert Band, and Orchestra.  Other performance opportunities include weekly Recital Class, weekly Studio Class, and Clarinet Studio recitals held every semester.  Students are also encouraged to perform in chamber ensembles.

Every February the Clarinet Studio hosts Clarinet Day on the Southern Miss campus.  World-renowned guest artists are brought in each year to play recitals, teach master classes, and share their expertise on achieving a successful career playing and teaching clarinet.  Dr. Jackie McIlwain also conducts a mass clarinet choir for all participants and teaches a master class for high school students who apply to perform prior to Clarinet Day.  A variety of clarinet equipment venders come and host exhibits as well as an expert repairman.  This is an exciting event you will want to be a part of each year!
