Side-by-Side Rehearsal

Each year The Philadelphia Orchestra selects one youth orchestra to sit side-by-side with our world-renowned musicians in a rehearsal of quality orchestral literature led by a skilled conductor. This thrilling opportunity connects developing musicians with their professional counterparts for one-on-one coaching in a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Participants of this program have included the Delaware County Youth Orchestra, the Philadelphia Sinfonia, the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, the PMEA Region VI Orchestra, the School District of Philadelphia All-City Orchestra, and the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County.

The Side-by-Side program is made possible by support from the Annenberg Foundation, the Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia, Christa and Calvin Schmidt, and the Wells Fargo Foundation.
