Sinfonia Associate Member Program

We have a very special opportunity we are offering for young musicians!

With our main auditions over and rehearsals ongoing over Zoom, we have felt saddened that we had to turn away so many fine players due to limited space imposed by social distancing restrictions or because they weren't quite ready. As with most youth orchestra programs, due to the current pandemic we are continuing our season online, allowing us to offer a unique opportunity to students who perhaps aren't quite ready to join or we don't have openings for their instrument. We would like to let you know about the program we are running this year only -- students may join our award-winning program (no audition required!) as a SINFONIA ASSOCIATE MEMBER.

For as long as we are online (most likely through May), Associate Members may take advantage of all our Saturday rehearsal activities:

*Participate in our weekly online Zoom rehearsals with our experienced conductors and excellent challenging repertoire
*Join us for online master classes and sectionals with world-renowned musicians from The Philadelphia Orchestra and other professional musicians
*Attend our orchestra educational seminars
*Perform in our video concert presentation 

CLICK HERE to register as a Sinfonia Associate.
We will then assign you to the appropriate orchestra session.
Tuition is $400* and can be paid online here.

Sinfonia Associate Members:

Sinfonia Associate Members may participate in one of our orchestras for the duration of our online activities, held on Saturdays:

We are eager to create ways to include more deserving and talented students at this difficult time and hope you will encourage your students to take advantage of this unique and exciting opportunity.
