Summer Conservatory at GSYO

All Day @ First Presbyterian Church

Recommended for musicians ages 6-14

GSYO invites members and non-members to participate in the acclaimed Golden State Youth Orchestra Summer Music Conservatory Program. From Beginning Orchestra, the ideal "first orchestra" experience, to Intermediate Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Winds for advanced-intermediate students, this two-week workshop is a great way to stay tuned up over the summer. The Summer Conservatory will conclude with an evening concert on July 26 at 7:00 pm. All programs are weekdays, Monday – Friday; students participate both weeks. Conservatory classes are held at the First Presbyterian Church of Palo Alto.
