Orchestra Project Summer Camp

It’s with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the week of Orchestra Project at the end of June.  The reality of the health and logistics have left us no other choice: VCU has let us know that the facilities will not be available to us during June.

We are working on planning some virtual online content that we hope to provide in the future – these might be in the form of workshops and masterclass tailored to specific skill levels.  It will take us a little bit of planning until we can get this off the ground later in the year, so stay tuned.

If you are currently not taking lessons, but are interested in taking some this spring or summer, we can connect you to Orchestra Project faculty. Please email to obtain the faculty list.

We will miss you and hope to see you next summer!





The Richmond Symphony and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) have partnered to create Orchestra Project, a unique orchestra camp for young string musicians in grades 2-12. Students study with VCU professors and full-time musicians from the Richmond Symphony.
