Junior Artist Seminar

AGES 13-17

In two weeks of intense immersion in music, students hone their skills and develop their unique musical voices through composition, ensembles, performance, and private tutorials. Additionally, students collaborate to compose a new orchestral work for the final concert. Opportunities for growth are unparalleled: students may elect to explore jazz improvisation or fiddling, and can challenge themselves further through advanced classical repertoire or participation in the concerto competition.
