Duration: 90 Minutes
Part of the Opera Boot Camp: Introduction to the Orchestra series

Are you curious about the difference between violins and violas, or oboes and English horns? Have you ever wondered how Met Orchestra musicians prepare for performances or why the percussionists rehearse in a different way than the flautists?

Back by popular demand, Opera Boot Camp once again turns its attention to the orchestra! Enrich your knowledge of orchestral instruments, gain insights into the history and mechanics of those instruments, and explore how orchestras evolved over time. Learn to listen to the orchestra in a new way as the Guild's resident Opera Boot Camp lecturer Naomi Barrettara guides you through this four-session course, accompanied by audio and video clips, and live demonstrations with guest musicians from the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
