Summer Music Workshops

ECYS invites members and non-members to participate in the acclaimed ECYS Summer Music Workshop Program! From Workshop I, the ideal "first orchestra" experience, to Workshops II & III for advanced intermediate students, this two-week workshop is a great way to stay tuned-up over the summer!

Young musicians will receive music theory in addition to ensemble training. The workshops will conclude with an evening concert on July 22.
