YOUNG VIRTUOSOS 2019
A Special Training Program for Young Musicians
 
 
 
This is our 3rd concert of the Young Virtuosos series. 
 
Orchestra members will have the opportunity to choose their favourite pieces, and those pieces will be arranged for solo instrument and for orchestra by Dr Koo. In the concert, selected members will play their piece as a soloist accompanied by the orchestra.
 
This concert provides an unprecedented opportunity for young musicians to have their first attempt as a soloist accompanied by an orchestra in front of a live audience.  They will learn the procedure and etiquette involved in such a performance, and will bring to a young musician an unforgettable and empowering experience. This valuable and unique experience will elevate their performance qualities and their love and passion for music.
 
All young musicians under 15 year of age and have been learning any of the following instruments for about 2 years are welcome to apply for this program:
 
  • Violin
  • Viola
  • Cello
  • Double Bass

Created by Kayla Flaxman, the newest and more fun program is coming to our young musicians with innovative orchestral improvisation.

Improvisation should be a part of every young musician’s training as it frees up the mind, allowing more creativity. It is a fantastic exercise for becoming comfortable with your instrument and confident in your playing.

All young musicians under 15 are welcome to join this program. If you are interested in joining, please fill up the Registration Form or contact us: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
