The Senior Symphonic Band will guide advanced musicians, who have comprehensive prior ensemble experience, through a week of collaborative music-making.

This will be an opportunity to focus on music written specifically for the Symphonic Band and help musicians develop further critical ensemble skills, teamwork, communication and creativity, and improve sight-reading through a series of rehearsals and workshops.

Thanks to the support of Melbourne’s best band tutors and music educators, participants will sit alongside musicians of a similar standard, develop rhythmic and technical skills together and be motivated by the shared goal of the final Winter School performance at Iwaki Auditorium.
