We regret to announce the cancellation of the River City Brass/Besson international Summer School owing to insufficient numbers of delegates to be able to make up a brass band. We apologise for the inconvenience and assure those already registered a full refund of any fees they may have paid.
Brass players, conductors and band directors (aged 15 or older) are invited to join us for our first annual River City Brass/Besson International Summer School on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University. Located right off Interstate 70, Wheeling Jesuit University is ideally situated for those living in the Tri-State area, as well as those needing access to nearby Pittsburgh International Airport. This unique partnership of three amazing institutions will offer an inspiring experience for all levels of musicians.

You'll learn from the some of the world's finest brass musicians, and experience a week of living and learning on a college campus.
