Event Details

Youth Orchestras of Prince William (“YOPW”) is a
nonprofit arts organization committed to supporting young musicians as they
discover the joys of ensemble performing. YOPW helps its participants become
better musicians, of course, but also expands their social networks, encourages
collaboration and creativity, and boosts their confidence.


YOPW is excited to launch the 2022 Summer Session. This two-week
program will include opportunities to play, learn, and explore in the beautiful
spaces of the Hylton Performing Arts Center (10960 George Mason Cir., Manassas,
VA 20110) under the watchful eyes and ears of talented musician educators …
with a little Go-Go for inspiration.




Large Ensembles

Summer Session students will rehearse challenging and fun
repertoire as part of either the Varsity Orchestra, Junior Varsity Orchestra,
or Chorus. At the end of the two-week program, the large ensembles will present
a concert for each other and their invited guests.



An ensemble is only as strong as its component parts. The YOPW
Summer Session will include sectional rehearsals during which students will
work with expert coaches to get performance hints, work out tricky parts, and
build ensemble.




Musicology and Workshops

The YOPW Summer Session includes time for students to approach
music academically. During musicology classes, participants will explore
history, theory, and science – the hows and whys of instrumental and choral
music. Rounding out the experience will be time each week dedicated to the
practical realities of music – how to practice and audition; writing and
speaking about music; and career and volunteer opportunities in the arts.




GoGo Symphony and DC Strings Orchestra

It’s funky … it’s percussive … it’s … orchestra?!? YOPW
Summer Session attendees will get to meet and hear a performance by GoGo
Symphony and DC Strings Orchestra. Celebrating the diversity that too often is
lacking in instrumental and choral music, this ensemble will have the students
dancing and thinking about other boundaries they can push with music.




Participation in the 2022 Summer Session is by invitation only
and space is limited. YOPW is looking for enthusiastic instrumentalists and
singers who will be between the ages of 11 and 19 as of June 28, 2022. YOPW
strongly encourages students to apply without regard to whether they have had
private teachers in the past … this program will allow inexperienced
musicians to learn from their peers and give more experienced musicians the
chance to grow by teaching.

To apply for an invitation, complete this form no later than
5:00 PM on Monday, May 16, 2022: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FTBTM6K


If offered a seat in the program, the participation fee is $350
per student with need-based scholarships available upon request.
