MYO’s 2019 Summer School Residential Camp will be held from 6 – 12 January.

Spend your summer in the city! We’re inviting talented students aged 12 to 17 from regional Victoria to attend a residential camp while taking part in MYO’s 2019 Summer School. Bring your instrument and join fellow young musicians for a fun week of music-making in the heart of Melbourne.

While attending Summer School, you will stay with a group of like minded young musicians from across the state for the entire week, taking part in social and musical activities each evening including sightseeing, tours and talent nights.
