The Da CAPO Youth Program
The Collaborative Artist's Progressive Orchestra
“Achieving top results through collaboration”
What is the Da CAPO Youth Program?
Da CAPO is an innovative approach to teaching string students orchestral playing. Small class sizes allow for more individual attention to student needs.
The once a week rehearsal format and small number of students in each section allows students the feel of a more professional setting and helps them take greater ownership of their own parts.
In the spirit of collaboration, student input is taken when selecting and arranging literature for each performance.
In order to give students unique performance opportunities, other groups and artists join together with the orchestra.
Students participating in the Da CAPO Youth Program are both able to have a fun musical and orchestral experience, but are also proud to be a part of something that is truly different.
Overall Class Goals:
-Achieve an excellent quality artistic product through collaboration between students, directors, and other artists
-Create unique performance opportunities for students
-Inspire students to continue to play and perform as artists and musicians
-Create a safe and fun atmosphere of camaraderie through which students can flourish
-Give students leadership opportunities
-Give students resources for which they can prepare more effectively for future artistic experiences
-Create opportunities to help and serve others in the community, to lift others through their artistic endeavors
-In all musical endeavors, to follow practices that ensure the safety and well-being of all students
“Thee lift me, and I’ll lift thee, and we’ll ascend together.”
In order to give students as much opportunity for success as possible, directors in the Da CAPO orchestra will provide many different practice resources. These include:
