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!
