An exclusive behind the scenes orchestral experience.
CSO for Teens is a new extension program in 2019 for young musicians aged 14–18. Led by Dr Eloise Fisher, a Juilliard DMA graduate and experienced educator, this exclusive learning opportunity allows young music enthusiasts to examine classical music from a variety of perspectives; historical, theoretical, and practical, in an engaging and vibrant atmosphere. You don’t even have to play an instrument! Each session focuses on the music in the upcoming CSO concert, allowing participants to experience the music all the way through from preparation to live performance.
As part of the learning sessions, participants will meet members of the orchestra, have the opportunity to discuss the musician’s instrument and part in the upcoming concert, and may also be invited to attend a rehearsal, gaining an exclusive insight into the orchestral preparation process.
Free tickets to all four ActewAGL Llewellyn Series concerts are provided as part of the program.
Places for this premier education opportunity are limited.

Students do not need to audition and there are no formal pre-requisites; if you are a teen that is interested in experiencing the world of classical music you are welcome to participate.
