Gabby Goril, a junior music performance and music education double major at IUP, attended the summer program Domaine Forget in Saint Irene, Canada. Saint Irene is located in Quebec along the Saint Laurence River. 

Open to instrumentalists and vocalists, Gabby, a hornist, participated in a week-long brass workshop, attending master classes and participating in private music lessons. As a member of a brass quintet, she was coached by Øystein Baadsvik, a world renowned tuba player from Norway. Her quintet rehearsed every day and participated in the final concert at the end of the week.

As part of the experience, she also had the chance to participate in a reading of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 and observe several other readings featuring the works of Bruckner and Wagner. The sessions were led by different notable musicians, including Phil Smith, the former principal trumpeter with the New York Philharmonic.

Gabby also had the chance to experience Canadian culture, make connections, and practice! She found the experience engaging and educational.
