What did the Allegro Orchestra Camp look like in 2009?
• Open to students completing grades 3-12 (6-12 for winds & percussion) with a minimum of two years of experience through advanced players. (Age exceptions can be made for younger students who meet certain criteria.)
• Located at Wayzata Community Church, 125 E. Wayzata Boulevard in Wayzata.
• Each day's schedule includes small group sectionals and full orchestra rehearsals in addition to master classes and performances by guest artists. (View the 2009 professional camp staff.)
• As professional orchestra-in-residence of the camp, Allegro Con Brio will offer a special performance/demonstration for the students. In addition, the Philharmonic from the camp will rehearse & perform side-by-side with the orchestra.
• Three levels of orchestras:
Philharmonic - Advanced orchestra works on professional orchestra repertoire. Students will also rehearse and perform side-by-side with the professional orchestra-in-residence, Allegro Con Brio.
Orchestra - Intermediate to advanced orchestra for students with several years of playing experience. Learn challenging music from all periods and styles.
Symphony - Intermediate level ensemble gives students the opportunity to play fun music in a full symphony orchestra.
• Placement auditions are held after the registration deadline in order to place students into one of the three orchestras. Students prepare a solo piece of their choice that best demonstrates their proficiency, as well as three scales.
