Are you are an enthusiastic and aspiring musician? In 2018 you can participate in one of Orchestra Victoria’s comprehensive mentoring and training workshops.

You'll have a chance to rehearse and perform alongside professional musicians from Orchestra Victoria when they tour to your town.

The 2017 programs have now finished. Stay tuned for next year's mOve! dates and locations announcement.

  • What happens in a workshop?

    Improve your technique, ensemble playing skills, and explore new repertoire in our intensive workshop program. Be part of an orchestra, rehearse under the baton of a professional conductor, and be mentored by top musicians in small group tutorials.

    On the final day of the program you will perform on stage alongside your OV mentors in a showcase concert that will highlight and share your achievements with the whole community!
