The DMV School Orchestra Intensive is for any string player ages 12 – 18! Parents can drop students off at 8am and pick up between 4-5pm. Students should bring their own music stand and a pencil with their instrument for a fun filled day of ensemble music making. Coaches and conductors will work with students in large and small groups to help prepare students for the final performance at the end of the week. Intended for string students off all levels, ages, and methods of study (yes, even outside of Suzuki!), this institute will allow students to experience an immersive orchestral experience with others of their same drive. Whether in orchestra rehearsal, group sessions and sectionals, or private lessons, all students will grow in their orchestral knowledge, self confidence, and friendships spanning training and states.
All GWSI programs run in person between 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. Student participants will not have classes scheduled during every hour in order to provide rest, practice time and socialization with their peers. Please bring a bag lunch and beverage each day.
