Master Class Proposal Submission

Master classes are performance classes in drama, dance, music, poetry, and film and allow for individual or group creative presentations. Depending on the enrollment, drama students may give monologues or small group scenes. Poetry participants will have the opportunity to present and to discuss their work. In Music, soloists (instrumental and vocal) and small instrumental ensembles (trios and quartets) are encouraged to apply. In all areas, submissions that emphasize the conference theme will be given priority for acceptance. The culminating master class showcase will feature presentations from each master class.

Questions regarding the Master Classes should be directed to: Brent Register at or 814-393-2473.
