Minnesota Orchestra Fantasy Camp is an opportunity for talented amateur musicians to participate in the professional orchestra experience. Launched in 2011, this biennial summer camp is a friendly and non-competitive experience. Rehearse and perform with our musicians, and learn about everything and everyone who helps a concert go from idea to reality.
