Here are a few comments from previous Summer Strings participants: ...We worked as a team and it sounded awesome! ...I never knew I could learn pieces so fast! ...It was challenging yet not too overwhelming. ... It was the highlight of my summer!
Spend a week working with high calibre coaches and mentors, develop your orchestral skills and experience, and be part of an awesome string orchestra! The program runs Monday through Saturday and culminates in a Festive Finale Concert at 12 noon on Saturday, July 22 in the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall, capping off the week of orchestrated adventure!
