Orchestra Summit

July 7–13, 2024

Susquehanna University presents an exclusive summer performance opportunity tailored for high school string musicians. This residential program places orchestral performance in the foreground, while also offering a distinctive cross-cultural experience. Delegates from schools and youth ensembles will join to perform a diverse concert program. The week will culminate with a tour of the Washington, D.C., area.
