Smithers will be hosting some elite young musical talents beginning Sunday.
Orchestra North will run their summer camp with upwards of 100 Provincial musicians.
Summer program co-director Roxi Dykstra says things have changed since she was growing up, which is why she got involved with the program.
“Reall the only place to connect with high-quality classical music was to go to the big cities. Now, as a professional, I’ve trained and come back and started teaching, realising there’s so much talent around here,” she says
The Orchestra will be collaborating at Northwest College in Smithers every day next week.
