Our traditional youth ensemble program is on hiatus this year due to COVID-19. Please stay tuned for in-person play-in sessions which will be scheduled for early fall.
Are you looking to develop ensemble skills while rehearsals are not possible? UVMC offers music theory classes, and we have developed special new performance and sight reading classes to keep your skills sharp while at home!
At each ensemble level, students tackle new skills in making music together – from reading notes and finding rehearsal letters, to communicating across the ensemble, blending sound and matching articulations. At advanced levels students work with guest clinicians in sectionals and master classes and have the option to add chamber music and theory classes. A teacher recommendation and/or placement audition is required for all ensembles. For information on placement, please read course descriptions or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students enrolled in a full term of lessons at UVMC receive a 50% discount on beginner orchestras (Orchestra Explorers and Synfonia).
