The Donald A. Dake Summer Music Academy is designed to challenge high school students who are advanced musicians that play a wind, brass, or string instrument. Students will be coached by musicians from the South Bend Symphony. The week-long academy is held at Saint Mary’s College and includes individual and group instruction, participation in the Academy Orchestra, masterclasses, public performances, and a community outreach tour.
Additionally, a conducting seminar is offered to select students. This unique opportunity gives students a chance to learn how to conduct from the South Bend Symphony’s own Maestro Tsung Yeh. Students will put into practice what they learn by conducting a faculty ensemble.
This year we are excited to announce a new partnership with the Fischoff National Chamber Music Association’s Mentoring Project. More information for ensembles that have participated in the Mentoring Project can be found in the registration form.
