Faculty in Action


Kevin Streich taught for another session at the North Carolina Governor's School East at Meredith College this Summer. This involved conducting the Wind Ensemble, coaching small groups as they composed their own musical and collaborative works, teaching private lessons to clarinetists and other wind and brass players, leading discussion seminars, leading students in stretches and calisthenics for practical fitness for musicians, and facilitating a weekly meditation elective.

Streich also maintained a private teaching studio at home and played several engagements with the NC Symphony. In August he taught sectional rehearsals for the Enloe High School clarinetists. 

Deanne Renshaw performed oboe and English horn with "Weird Al" Yankovic as part of his "Strings Attached" tour on June 28 at CCNB Amphitheater at Heritage Park in Simpsonville, SC and on July 14 at Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheater in Charlotte, NC. 


Our Clarinet teacher, Kevin Streich, has made several school visits to work with clarinet students (and others). At Leesville Road High School in Raleigh, Streich did clarinet and bass clarinet sectional work (2 full days). At Midway High School in Newton Grove, Streich did a masterclass with the clarinet students as well as those who were auditioning for All-State, including an oboist and a string bass player. Later in March Streich will appear as a clarinet clinician at Bunn Middle School.
