Skill Level: Intermediate and up

cleveland-pops-youth-orchestra-summer-camp

Get back in the swing of ensemble playing with a summer camp session of the Cleveland Pops Youth Orchestra, led by Carl Topilow.

Emphasis will be on various pops styles including jazz, rock, film music, and Broadway. Technique, rhythm, reading skills will be honed, and small ensembles will be formed to play music in pops styles.

Activities will encourage teamwork and cooperation, as well as building musical discipline. Guest clinicians will include prominent members of the Cleveland Pops Orchestra who will work with students to explore these various styles of performance.

The Cleveland Pops Youth Orchestra will be resuming in-person at The Music Settlement this October, and this summer session will help prepare students for not only the fall Youth Pops, but for their school bands and orchestras as well.
