Playing in a professional orchestra places special demands on string players. While soloist's qualities are expected in auditions, another kind of quality is needed for playing in the tutti section of a large orchestra. We would therefore like to offer dedicated musicians the opportunity to learn from internationally renowned musicians and successful soloists of prestigious orchestras through participation in this course, and to profit from their artistic and professional knowledge.
