Sing, play, move, and create your way through a week of joyful, high energy musical experiences. Taught by master Orff-Schulwerk teachers, students will unlock their creativity by composing and designing their own music with their friends. Students will develop ensemble skills with mallet instruments (xylophones) and other percussion. They will have a blast singing, moving, and playing in many other musical ways too. An “informance” for parents on Friday will culminate our week and demonstrate their musical creations.

8:30-12:00 Monday through Friday

students ages 7–18

with at least 1 year of experience in the study of voice, brass or string instrument

Join the SOTA Chamber Music Summer Intensive for a week of fun, meaningful music making in ensemble settings. Guided by some of the region’s most experienced professional musicians, students will develop deeper insights and understanding into how to approach music for mixed instrumental and choral textures. Sharpen basic musicianship, cross-ensemble listening, music analysis, and the ability to perform with greater artistry, as this week-long intensive culminates with a final concert for parents and family members.


Please refer to our SOTA Facebook Page for information about cancellations.
