Summer Camps & Institutes

Below is some information on wonderful summer opportunities available to orchestra students! Please double-check the information as some dates/prices may be subject to change and some camps may be at maximum capacity. Some of these camps are just day camps, while others are boarding camps; some offer both options. Remember that summer music camps are not the only enrichment opportunity. 

Vivo - A youth strings institute by the Atlanta Symphony


My name is Michael Kralik and I am assisting with the Atlanta Symphony as they launch Vivo, a youth strings institute, for the first time this July! This is a four-day camp open to all strings students in 5th-12th grades. Students will get the chance to work with many professional musicians and also pick from a variety of electives such as theory, music technology, production, conducting, etc. 

It will be an exciting opportunity and we are hoping to get folks from all over Georgia to participate! 

Basic details: Website

Dates: July 15-18

Location: Atlanta Symphony Hall
