All participants must be 18 years of age by the program start date -- Sunday June 18, 2023 -- and must participate for the full 6-week period of the program.

Musicians are full-time active participants. Players rotate within their sections and remain in the orchestra. Conductors receive weekly rehearsal time on the podium and perform in concerts.
