Maestro Visits

Having a workshop with a professional conductor can have a huge impact on the way your band, orchestra, or chorus works. Maestro Robert Franz will visit your school to work with your ensemble on music they are preparing for an upcoming performance as well as to talk to your students about being a professional musician. These events are free, though a $50 cancellation fee will be applied if the visit is cancelled less than 1 week from the agreed upon date.


Scheduling a Maestro Visit depends on Maestro Franz’s availability, and spaces can fill up quickly. We are happy to work with you to attend your rehearsal during its normally scheduled time, even if it’s early in the morning! Your students are working hard, and we are here to support them. Every student who participates in a Maestro Visit will receive one free ticket to the WSO Masterworks or Intimate Classics concert of their choice, so that they can see a professional orchestra in action.
