Two weekend music camps are organised each year for The Dorkestra and The Awkwardstra, where we play our instruments until our fingers drop off! Delicious food, wine and general good humour is on the menu for the entire weekend and we are joined by professional musicians in the industry who tutor each section of the orchestra over the course of the two days. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn more about bringing your own sound into your orchestra, working with your peers on those tricky trills (and of course getting the weekend off work!). Camps are typically held in May and October.
Day workshops are also run during the year for each of these adult ensembles and are organised by the ensemble coordinator and our maestro Daemon Clark.
