Join us for VYOA Summer Symphony Camp, a unique summer music experience! VYOA Summer Symphony Camp is a great way to introduce young musicians to symphony and jazz orchestra. This week-long program is designed to provide a fun and supportive environment for exploring these new avenues of ensemble playing.  All students will participate in both orchestras, performing a wide range of musical styles and giving them an opportunity to experiment with different musical genres. Campers make new friends while playing chamber music and participating in other fun electives.
