In 2011, Villa Sinfonia will again offer two weeks of camp. Session 1 is reserved for advanced players only, with more time for rehearsing larger works, practicing, and sight-reading. Session 2 is for players from Suzuki Book I through the very advanced. Less experienced performers will have one chamber ensemble in the morning and chamber orchestra in the afternoon. More advanced players will have 2 small ensembles. Last year the repertoire ranged from early Mozart quartets to works by Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, and Shostakovich.
