Wow, what an opportunity!

I had to chuckle when I read of a brass workshop given at a Roman Catholic retreat because it reminded me of a post on another forum where a musician had to go to a certain location for a commitment and he was put up in a nearby Carmelite monastery. He got settled in, started to blow a few notes and suddenly the whole world seemed to come crashing all around him, creating a big uproar.

It seems that Carmelites practice contemplation and meditation and silence for much of the day.

I’m tempted to attend this event as an auditor. The information is pretty limited, though. Is it aimed toward high school / college players, so that older amateurs wouldn’t fit in?

As a 56-year-old amateur player who had a brief pro career in my youth, I learned a great deal attending the master classes and warm-ups at last year's event as an auditor. The overall atmosphere of the event was very welcoming and inclusive.

As an auditor, don't expect to get in much playing time beyond warm-ups and maybe a piece or two in the choir. The auditioned players are paying some real coin compared to the auditors, and they rightly deserve the undivided attention of the instructors.

You can however expect to hear some great playing, and you'll have the opportunity to learn a lot by watching and listening to highly accomplished teachers practicing their craft with the auditioned players.

At this point, it's an event that's geared toward classical large bore tenor and bass playing, so bring the appropriate horn and mindset.

The auditioned players at the inaugural event were serious college musicians who were all playing at a very high level. There was also one pro, Jay Wise, bass trombonist of the Omaha Symphony.

"Achieved Is The Glorious Work" from Haydn's "The Creation" was one of the pieces the ensemble worked on and performed, so you should feel comfortable with this level of playing if you plan to play in the choir. One of the warm-ups involved mouthpiece buzzing the entirety of Bordogni/Rochut #8 from memory, so there's another example of what to expect.

July is a great time of year to be in Santa Fe, with nice weather and nightly performances at the Santa Fe Opera, Desert Chorale, Chamber Music Series, etc. Just be sure to secure lodging well in advance, because Santa Fe is a very popular tourist destination, and July is high season.

Thanks for that review. As an advanced amateur, I had a similar question. I can’t attend this year but would definitely consider it next year.

I received an email today from the sponsors of this event. It’s been cancelled. No surprise, since some of the faculty were from the Santa Fe Opera, and the opera season has been cancelled. Too bad - it sounded like a great event.
