The Winter Solo Performance Intensive (December 28, 2024 – January 2, 2025) is designed for advanced string players 13-19 years of age preparing for upcoming solo performances and competitions. This program includes: four private lessons, daily 30-minute workout sessions with assigned faculty accompanists, daily hour-long solo performance classes, five hours of required daily private practice, and a week-ending Grand Finale Recital.
Students will reside in the beautiful mansion shown above and will enjoy gourmet-style meals throughout the week-long program. PIMF has made every effort to surround the young musicians participating in this program with beauty and excellence so the only thing they need to focus on is performance.
Note: Alumni of the PIMF Solo Performance Preparation Program may bypass the audition process. All others must submit an audition here.

"Awesome - my daughter’s playing improved with the high level of music instruction. She also met quite a few kid musicians from all over the world that she’s been keeping contact with. I really loved the focus on practicing. She will be returning next year!”

“Our children love this camp so much. This is their fourth season, and I'm sure we will be back next year. What they learned this year was just amazing. The atmosphere is not only professional, it's fun! They come home inspired by all they see and set new goals for their playing. The staff are always so courteous and helpful. The Philadelphia Orchestra teachers are always the best. Thank you for all your hard work.”
