Performing in a symphony orchestra is one of the most exhilarating experiences a young musician will encounter. The team aspect of orchestral playing – each member offering their individual skill for a collective purpose – instills life skills that have far reaching benefits. VAM Orchestral Program is comprised of four (that’s right – we have four levels of Orchestra now!) levels of orchestral training that aim to strike a balance between excellence and enjoyment. Auditions are now open to join any of the orchestras that VAM offers:
Pre-Junior (PJs): Ages 5-7; Suzuki Book 2-4 or RCM Grade 1-3 (strings only – no audition necessary)
VAMJS: Ages 7-10; Suzuki Book 4-5 or RCM Grade 3-5
VAMIS: Ages 10-14; Suzuki Book 5-7 or RCM Grade 5-8
VAMSO: Ages 13 and above; RCM Grade 9-ARCT
Dates: June 2 to 13
