Classical Jam Sunday – September 8, 2013

Photo Courtesy Frank Weber PhotographyEach fall, the Florida Young Artists Orchestra kicks off the start of its’ new season with a special day known as the “Classical Jam”. This year’s Classical Jam will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2013 at Trinity Preparatory School. Note that the Classical Jam will be held a few weeks later than usual (and a few weeks into rehearsals), to accommodate other scheduled events at Trinity Prep. The Classical Jam consists of several important events, including rehearsals for our orchestras, a mini-concert by the Symphony at 3:00 pm, a parent meeting and other housekeeping events. Parents and students (and their families) are invited. Below is a sampling of what you can do (but if you have any questions, feel free to contact us via email at or by calling (407) 257-8886).

For Students:

  • Sinfonia, Philharmonic and Symphony orchestras will rehearse
  • All students should come to hear the Symphony perform at the start of the Parent Meeting
