Cincinnati Symphony Brass Institute highlighted in Fanfare Magazine

Lindsay teaching students

Miami University's collaboration last summer with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra was highlighted with an article in Fanfare Magazine.

The Cincinnati Symphony Brass Institute, founded by CSO Associate Principal Trumpet Doug Lindsay and composed of a High School Program and an Orchestral Training Fellowship, is an auditioned, one-week brass-intensive program provided at no cost to students. According to Lindsay, this program focuses on launching the next generation of professional brass musicians into the orchestral world armed with every tool needed to find success. Programs like the CSBI are a rare gem in the crown of professional music-making. The program has two components: one focuses on outreach to high school students in the Cincinnati/Dayton area; the other serves young professionals stepping into the early stages of their orchestral careers. Students in both categories are invited to this one-week program to engage in private lessons, masterclasses and chamber music rehearsals—all taught by the world-renowned musicians of the CSO. 

Following the success of 2022, the 2023 Cincinnati Symphony Brass Institute will take place in June 2023 at Miami University. To learn more and to apply, please visit
