In celebration of contemporary and classical music, Tampa Bay area youth orchestras are invited to attend a day at the Straz. 

It’s your chance to perform with your high school or middle school orchestra on stage in the majestic Carol Morsani Hall at the Straz Center!

Students will gain inspiration and solid instruction as they participate in master classes with professional musicians. All groups will also attend individual and massed orchestra rehearsals.

The event will culminate in a collaborative performance in Carol Morsani Hall. Each school orchestra will perform three to four works of their choice, followed by a spectacular group finale conducted by Stephen P. Brown, principal conductor of the Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra.

This unique educational and performance experience is a great way to kick off your season! Network with other organizations and learn from one another as we foster a sense of community.

Students will have fun and grow as individual musicians and as an ensemble.

All Tampa Bay area school orchestras are encouraged to attend. Registration is due by September 1, 2012. If your school group is interested, please call 813-222-1002.
