An excellent intergenerational educational and nurturing environment where students gain a strong understanding of orchestral music and develop their ensemble skills. Virtual learning for symphonic repertoire includes weekly rehearsals, sectionals, workshops, discussions and playing assignments. Students come together at the start of rehearsal or at assigned times for each section of the orchestra. Sectional workshops focus on score studying, analysis and form, and interpretation skills. Students learn how to practice more effectively, attain proficiency in their own parts, grasp and appreciate what other players are learning in their parts, and listen to and read from scores. They learn to work with recordings, as a professional recording artist would work with a click track. Weekly projects, which involve listening, practicing and writing, provide a follow-up to lectures and discussion groups. Winners of an annual concerto competition perform in a special concert.
