About the National Music Camp Orchestral Program

National Music Camp is a whirlwind two weeks filled with new faces, exhilarating challenges and uplifting performances. Be inspired by tutors, artists and conductors of international standing and experience music-making at an elite national level as part of a superb symphony or chamber orchestra.

You’ll join the country’s best young musicians for a two-week residential program. Throughout the program, you will be engaged in orchestral and sectional rehearsals, as well as tutorials with some of Australia’s most respected instrumental tutors and conductors.

You will also gain practical skills in areas that support your performance aspirations through professional development sessions led by experienced tutors and artists. In addition, you will have the opportunity to explore the world of chamber music as part of a small chamber ensemble. At the conclusion of the program, showcase your combined efforts in a series of exciting orchestral concert performances.
