The DSO Young Strings program holds summer camps for all string students (violin, viola, cello, and double bass), 5th grade and older. These are intensive, week-long workshops, led by DSO and other professionals, designed to help students improve their technique and musicianship through work in chamber ensembles. Both camps are held at the Meyerson Symphony Center (2301 Flora St.)
