Talented young musicians have the opportunity to be mentored by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra Fellows in this "pop-up" music camp.
Presented in partnership with the Mercy Music and Performance Academy Parramatta. The workshop involves the formation of a student orchestra playing alongside the Sydney Symphony Fellows and includes the preparation of large orchestral works through rehearsals, sectionals and masterclasses. The workshop concludes with a free concert for family and friends.
Piccolo, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon – AMEB Grade 4
French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba – AMEB Grade 4

Participation Fee: $150
It is expected that participants will be available for all days of the workshop. The participation fee is only payable once the student has been accepted into the workshop.
During the multi-day workshops, students will participate in instrumental section tutorials mentored by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra Fellows. They will study orchestral parts focusing on aspects of musicianship such as posture, intonation, articulation, ensemble playing and interpretation. The students and SSO Fellows then come together to rehearse as a whole orchestra, finishing off with a free concert for family and friends.
Repertoire is selected after the applications close and parts will be sent to successful participants in advance of the weekend so they have time to practice.
Successful applicants will need to bring their own instrument (except percussionists), music, music stand, pencil & eraser. Bring your own lunch, morning/afternoon tea, and water bottle.
Successful applicants will need to make their own arrangements for transport to and from the workshop venue on all days.
An opportunity for young people who want to share their curiosity and discoveries around live orchestral music.
The Sydney Symphony Orchestra Fellowship is recognised as one of the world's leading orchestral training programs.
