Established in 2005, the DSO Academy is proving popular with Dunedin’s younger players as it provides crucial opportunities to learn how to rehearse and perform. These are important skills for aspiring Dunedin Youth Orchestra and DSO players.
The Academy musicians meet once a week during the second and third school terms, and at the end of each term present a concert of their term’s work. This is for players between Grades 2 to 6. The Director for 2022 is Rachel Barton, assisted by Rose Stevenson, both senior Dunedin violinists.
Play with the Orchestra
Play with the Orchestra is an opportunity for students and community musicians (of Grade 6 level or higher) to play alongside DSO players, in a workshop setting conducted by one of our guest conductors and playing music from our concert series.
The Play with the Orchestra event occurs once a year. If you’re interested in taking part in this year’s Play with the Orchestra, register your interest with the form below.
