Orchestra & Junior Strings Camps
Each year the SYO hosts an open Orchestra camp and a Junior Strings camp for young musicians in the Shoalhaven to come together to rehearse over the weekend and develop their skills, make new friends and have a heap of fun culminating in a big performance at the end of the weekend.
The camp involves intensive rehearsals of orchestral music with our Maestro John Dunstan and expert tutors in orchestral instruments and performance.
The overnight camp allows students to meet new friends with similar interests and be involved in orchestral playing they may not usually be exposed to.
Registrations for auditions for camp are available through this page or, for more information, please contact us.
“When I play the cello it helps me express my feelings. Learning the cello was not easy at first, but I soon came to enjoy it and think of no other instrument! SJS and my teachers guided me to play with others to make music.”Albert Marr, Junior Strings, Cello
Tuning In! is the music education program of SYO. Trained music educators conduct various classes for children aged between 2 and 12 in Nowra and Berry. The program develops basic musical skills as well as allowing children to try out, and begin to learn, all the instruments of the orchestra.
