Heard about this one yet? The BSO is offering a new summer program called the BSO Academy, where for one week, June 13-19, amateur musicians can learn and perform with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Essentially, it’s Rusty Musicians, but BIGGER.
The week includes lessons, rehearsals, sectionals, and “enrichment classes” (beats me), and culminates in a finale performance and reception. Respighi’s The Pines of Rome and Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra are on the aural menu for the concert, to which the public is invited.
The program is open to all musicians 22 and older, and applications are due by March 15; you are invited to include a CD of you playing up to ten minutes of material. Read about tuition and fees here, you can apply here, and you’ll know by April 5 if you’ve been accepted. Good luck!
just came across this info about BSO Summer Camp for adults. breaks my heart to see I’m a month late of application deadline . . . looking for any more B-flat clarinetists?
are you aware of any other summer camps for adults – band, orchestras, whatever?
thanks in advance for any help, info you can offer
I just spoke to one of the higher-ups and was informed that you can go ahead and apply anyway–provided your instrument is one they need, there might be a slot for you. So go ahead and give it a shot! If you need any more help, just let me know. 😀
I’ve seen this thread before, but wanted to let you know that we are now accepting applications for the 2011 BSO Academy – held June 12-18, 2011 in Baltimore, MD. It’s going to be just like last year, but bigger and even better! We have some great repertoire picked out and new courses to offer, but we’re keeping the very best parts of the week the same. There will still be rehearsals with members of the BSO and Music Director Marin Alsop, a finale concert at the end of the week and much more! Visit BSOAcademy.org for more information or to apply!
