Annapolis Symphony Academy Announces Audition Dates, Expanded Program


Calling all young musicians!

After a successful inaugural year, the Annapolis Symphony Academy is expanding its program to include talented elementary school musicians as its approaches auditions for the 2019-2020 school year.

“We are so excited to broaden our scope to include motivated young musicians on the elementary school level,” said Dr. Netanel Draiblate, founder and director of the Annapolis Symphony Academy. “After our first year with middle and high school students, we have honed our procedures and established a solid foundation that will work perfectly with our new younger students.”

Auditions for the 2019-2020 school year will be held on Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5, at Temple Beth Shalom in Arnold. Interested applicants can secure an audition slot through the online application at the Academy’s website:  Audition requirements for elementary, middle and high school applicants, as well as information on tuition and need-based tuition waivers are also on the website.

Launched in 2018, the Annapolis Symphony Academy is an immersive strings program for students with a goal of preparing them for a career in classical music or music education. Led by Annapolis Symphony Orchestra musicians and guest artists, instruction includes private lessons, ensemble coaching and group learning in a deliberately diverse environment. About half of all students  admitted to the program receive full-tuition scholarships if they meet family income criteria.
