The San Francisco Academy Orchestra's Artist Diploma Program is designed to offer an intensive one-year fellowship that focuses solely on the practical skills necessary to prepare for auditions and a career in orchestral music. Coursework includes weekly private instruction, weekly group excerpt classes, mock auditions, and the opportunity to rehearse and perform alongside members of the San Francisco Symphony. Completion of two curriculum sessions will result in the Academy Orchestra's Artist Diploma in Orchestral Studies and potentially the Academy Prize in recognition of one musician who demonstrates outstanding artistry.
