Every year the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra offers masterclasses and workshops with visiting guest artists.

These are usually available to those students playing at Dunedin Youth Orchestra or University level, or to professional musicians.

Previously, masterclasses have been offered with internationally renowned artists like violinist Shlomo Mintz, clarinetist Michael Collins, Berlin Philharmonic concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley, Sydney Symphony Orchestra cellist and conductor Umberto Clerici, and NZSO Principal Timpani Laurence Reese and NZSO Principal Percussion Leonard Sakofsky.

University Scholarship

This scholarship is available annually for a student studying performance of an orchestral instrument at the University. The scholarship is co-funded by the DSO and the DSO Foundation. Scholarship applicants must pass a DSO audition as well as an audition for instrumental study at the University.
