Opportunities for Students

Limited opportunities for talented middle and high school students by audition only

Festival Dates for student participants are August 6 - August 13 in Mammoth Lakes. 

Auditions will be held in Los Angeles April 15 - 16, 2017

Tuition for students is $525 and does not include room and board. For participants, this is a day camp, which means students are responsible for themselves outside of rehearsals and performances, including transportation to and from events. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. 

This is a very unique festival. It is essentially a professional orchestra but we offer 18-20 student performers the opportunity to be seated, side by side, with a working professional musician as a stand partner. Professional participants come from the LA Philharmonic, LA Chamber Orchestra, LA Opera, Pasadena Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Chicago Symphony and the Santa Barbara Symphony. We expect thorough preparation and professional behavior from our young participants.
