It's the orchestra's sixth annual BSO Academy Week. From Saturday, June 20 through Saturday, June 27, 2015, instrumentalists from across the country are invited to rehearse and perform side-by-side with BSO musicians in an intensive music “fantasy camp.” The BSO’s Academy Week has become a popular destination for amateur musicians from across the country. The Academy provides an immersive experience for participants who desire a comprehensive learning experience through four distinct tracks for performers, educators and administrators: Orchestral Track, Chamber Music Track, Music Educator Track and the Arts Administrator Track.
Academy Week provides a variety of performing and learning experiences for adult musicians. Participants in Group One of the Orchestral Track (June 21-27) will rehearse and perform Wagner’s Overture to Rienzi, the third movement from Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, “Titan" and Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite (1919), while Group Two will work on Rimsky-Korsakov’s Russian Easter Overture, the first movement from Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 and the fourth movement from Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 2. Participants in both groups will have the opportunity to work with both BSO Music Director Marin Alsop.
There is a fee to attend, of course. Fees start at $1900 (except for the Arts Administration track which starts at $950).
