Summer Orchestral Workshop: Open Orchestra
The Horto Orchestral Workshop is aimed at students of all instruments of a
symphony orchestra. Within the Workshop, young musicians will have the opportunity
to be actively involved in the process of preparing and presenting a demanding symphony concert. In addition to technical and interpretative issues, emphasis will be given to issues related to collaboration, such as ethics, team spirit, and artistic teamwork. The Workshop is under the general supervision of Anastasios Strikos in collaboration with experienced teachers who supervise and prepare the individual orchestral groups.
