Shadow Days


Get the experience of a Mason music student for a day! Led by our Mason Music Ambassadors, our Spring 2022 Shadow Days will feature opportunities to attend classes, watch and participate in ensemble rehearsals, meet faculty and current students, tour our facilities, learn about the audition process, and much more. All students are welcome to attend.
