We are proud to offer local school orchestras and bands the opportunity to play under the baton of Music Director Josep Caballé-Domenech or Associate Conductor Thomas Wilson in a school-day rehearsal. Both conductors work with young players and share their insights into the process and joys of making great music come to life.
