Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—180 students freshened up on their musical skills Saturday.  Middle school and high school students from all over Washington participated in the 7th annual Doctor Durbin Orchestra Clinic and Master Class Workshops.

Doctor Durbin is a world-renowned conductor and educator.  One student says he comes to the workshop every year specifically for Doctor Durbin's teaching style.

"He's phenomenal.  I've never had a more inspiring conductor or teacher," says Ryan Jacobsen, workshop participant.

The Gonzaga University Symphony conductor also held clinics throughout the week.
