Winter Session

Due to the Virginia Governor’s recent COVID safety mandate, winter session will be limited to quartets only. We encourage you to register today. We are anticipating that spots will fill up quickly.

This winter program will include weekly 2-hour in-person group rehearsals as well as an online independent practice component that will include recording and collaboration using BandLab app.

Playing in such small ensembles allows our young musicians to bring their art to a new level, further developing the expertise and confidence to play as soloists. In addition, our Sinfonietta allows our entire complement of musicians to perform together.

All participants must have 3 years of experience to participate. Students are placed in groups based on their individual skill level, as determined in an informal preliminary audition. Each applicant should schedule an audition. Dates and times are available upon request.

PRICE: $300

November 29 – January 17


Norfolk Church of Christ
5801 Granby Street, Norfolk, 23505

Socially distanced in-person quartets will meet for rehearsals. All COVID safety precautions will be put in place for all participating groups and instructors. Only HRCP staff and students will be allowed to enter the church. We will require all students to wear masks and parents will be required to perform health checks before dropping off their musicians. We will be sanitizing in between each group.

More detailed information about safety and attendance will be sent to registered students.
