A Fun Introduction to Orchestra!
We’re ready for summer – aren’t you? Join us this summer for fun and music-making at VYOA Summer Symphony Camp. We’re excited to offer this popular program again this year – it’s great way to introduce young musicians to playing in symphony and jazz orchestras in a supportive environment.
Summer Symphony Camp welcomes string students entering grades 5 through 9, and wind, brass, and percussion students entering grades 6 through 9, who have at least one year of experience. This week-long intensive focuses on fundamentals and bringing musicians together for in-person music-making. In addition to daily rehearsals, campers can participate in fun electives such as chorus, world drumming, improvisation, and recreation. Camp closes with an end-of-camp concert for family and friends.
