Philharmonic musicians from each orchestra section (strings, brass, winds and percussion) conduct sectional workshops with orchestra and band students from a selection of local middle and high schools in the local area. These sectional rehearsals provide middle and high school orchestra and band students with specialized instruction based on the students’ instrumental section. Philharmonic musicians perform with and instruct the entire section, ranging from 5 to 35 students, for a two and a half hour period.
