Allegro Orchestra Camp — 2009 Professional Staff

Beginning with the 2010 session, the Allegro Orchestra Camp will be administered by MacPhail Center for Music (read more).  The name Allegro Orchestra Camp will remain, along with the camp location, format and majority of the fine staff. William Stuber will remain the Artistic Director and Allegro Con Brio will continue to serve as orchestra-in-residence.  This being said, students will continue to be taught by many of the top professional musicians and music teachers in the Twin Cities through daily rehearsals, small group sectionals, workshops and performances.

The 2010 Allegro Orchestra Camp will take place on June 14-24, 2010.  Early registration discounts are available now. Call MacPhail at 612-321-0100 or visit the MacPhail catalog today to reserve your spot.
