About

The Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra Advanced Summer Music Camps are are individualized focused day camps that offer small ensemble playing opportunities, daily group and individualized instruction, and masterclasses/lectures for advanced instrumental students in Grades 9-12 or in college (Freshman-Seniors) for the 2023-2024 school year. These camps are suited for the more dedicated and advanced players.

This music camp is a more intense, individualized chamber music camp different from that of band or orchestra camp. It is suited for the more dedicated and advanced players. Though no one will be turned away from participating, in addition to the age requirement, we ask that any student planning to attend must be able to play a two octave chromatic scale, and know at least 5 of the 12 major scales on their select instrument AND/OR the student has been participating in the Fayetteville Symphony Youth Orchestra for at least one year. This music camp is not intended for beginning instrumentalists. For any questions regarding whether your child can participate, please email info@fayettevillesymphony.org.
