Our orchestras rehearse every day, often for 2 hours. Music faculty will place the campers into one or two of our 3 orchestras based on their Ensemble Placement Recording, a recording you submit after you have enrolled.
All of our orchestras are lead by faculty and have counselor and faculty players in the ensemble. At orchestra camp, the campers play great repertoire and get the experience of playing with great role models and professionals!
Philharmonia: Our string only ensemble for beginner and intermediate players. This ensemble develops camper’s skills in sight reading, listening, and following a conductor through the study of both original literature for string orchestra and arrangements.
Senior Orchestra: Our camper full orchestra for more advanced string, wind, brass and percussion players, performing larger orchestral works.
Chamber Orchestra: is comprised of staff members and campers in the Conservatory program, playing works written for chamber orchestra. Other campers are invited to be members of this group if they are excellent sight readers and can play at an advanced level.
