In this course you practice your artistic interpretive ability, and develop the perception of the role of your main instrument as part of an orchestra. You participate both in individual lessons, in chamber music lessons and in symphonic orchestra playing with students from the master's programme in Symphonic Orchestra Performance. The course is a preparation for the master's programme in Symphonic Orchestra Performance and also aims at developing you in realizing your own artistic ideas and to be able to communicate with audiences. The course is on undergraduate level and runs full-time during one semester.
