ESM's Annual Orchestra Retreat

ESM students join together each year for a fun weekend retreat outside Toronto. Faculty and guest teachers lead sessions in orchestra, enrichment, small groups, and other activities, culminating in a special performance for the students' families on Sunday morning.
The retreat runs from Friday evening through to Sunday morning, including overnight. (New this year: a one-day option for first-time attendees. See below.) The facilities feature clean and comfortable housing, plenty of indoor and outdoor recreation, and delicious catered meals. ESM faculty and adult chaperones are present throughout the retreat.
