The Symphonic Training Program provides the opportunity for young musicians aged 8 – 25.  

This program will broaden their potential music career by building up their orchestral music repertoires, as well as imparting to them the value of communication, teamwork, and discipline.

Symphonic skills training will be including how to watch and follow a conductor and various orchestral etiquette. Especially for those who play wind instruments, brass instruments, and percussion, they will learn new techniques that aren’t as widely used in a band setting as with an orchestra, requiring them to be more sensitive with their technical abilities.

This program has 40 scheduled sessions (rehearsals and concerts) with carefully selected programs covering a variety of cultural aspects and artistic values. The program for each concert includes important classical symphonies with multiple movements. These multiple-movement training will strengthening young musicians' physical and mental capabilities and will give a fantastic performing experience that young musicians will be benefited forever.

 

Rehearsals will begin on Friday 19 July.
Sydney Hills Junior Orchestra 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Sydney Hills Youth Orchestra 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The concert will be on Friday 10 December, 7:30 pm
