The VCU Orchestra Project, a joint venture between VCU Music and the Richmond Symphony, is a unique orchestra camp. Staffed entirely by some of the most talented players and teachers in Richmond — VCU professors and full-time musicians from the Richmond Symphony — it is designed to immerse young players in the magic of great music making. The mission of the VCU Orchestra Project is to bring about transformative growth in young musicians in one week’s time.
The VCU Orchestra Project offers the following programs, with both dorm and day options available:
String Intensive: an advanced and focused week for high school string players where we dig deep into chamber music, string orchestra, and workshops. Auditions are held in the spring. Come immerse yourself at Intensive.
String Odyssey: for the burgeoning string player, third through ninth grade. We dig into a whirlwind of repertoire and have fun with electives as well. Two years playing experience required – surprise yourself at Odyssey.
