Ensembles | Precollege
In the Spring 2021 “YCO & Camerata Experience: The Full Orchestra for Strings,” students from both ensembles will come together to perform and discuss orchestral music. Students will engage in weekly sessions with YOP conductors and will work in tandem with Richmond Symphony musicians through level-appropriate sectional coachings. Students in this ensemble will be joined by winds, brass, and percussion students for full-orchestra recording projects. All students will have access to music education software within MusicFirst, our learning management system, and will be able to enroll in select collaborative and exploratory elective classes as a discounted price to fill out their YOP experience.
Virtual performances and showcases will celebrate our achievements at the end of the semester. Students may also enter our solo competition, where the winner will be featured on our YouTube channel!
