Please note that mature students may better handle the audition process and the public master class instruction in the Young Artist Program. While there are no age limits, high school age students may adapt to this somewhat more intense experience more easily than younger children. The regular Senior String program is another very rewarding option available for advanced students who are not sure about the YAP, or who are not accepted into the program (there is strictly limited enrolment in the YAP).Application deadline is May 1, 2024
