Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is excited to announce the launch of a brand new, week long intensive chamber orchestra training program specializing in a conductorless, collaborative approach to musical preparation. Students will spend a full week learning and utilizing the Orpheus ProcessTM, Orpheus’ trademark method of democratic collaboration, culminating in a full performance on the final day of the program. Along with daily rehearsals, students will also participate in seminars lead by Orpheus musicians.

Students will also be assigned CORE positions. The CORE are principal players for each part of a particular work and this group changes for each work. The CORE lead full rehearsals based on earlier decisions made during CORE rehearsal. However, all musicians may at any time discuss these decisions or suggest new ideas.

Located at Mannes School of Music- The New School, students will spend the week in exciting downtown Manhattan. There will be time for sightseeing or attending events in NYC in the evenings.
