Summer String Institute 2022

The Summer String Institute immerses talented and aspiring middle school and high school string musicians in an intensive week of mentoring, chamber music coaching, individual lessons, and rehearsals.

While Summer String Institute students work on ambitious repertoire to develop true professionalism, they also enjoy camaraderie and the adventure of creating great music. All Summer String Institute sessions are run in a day-camp arrangement, with an intensive week of orchestra rehearsals, chamber music rehearsals and coaching, private lessons, and movement classes, culminating with performances by the orchestra and chamber ensembles.

In 2022, National Philharmonic will be offering three Summer String Institute sessions.
