PREREQUSITE: Completion of at least two full calendar years of string ensemble or private instruction. Students must also be proficient in sight-reading. 

Now in its 28th season, this program is open to intermediate and advanced students interested in reading and performing various types of music. This camp emphasizes sight-reading skills, proper playing position, pitch and rhythm precision, tone development, music theory, and musical technique and interpretation. During the day, students will perform in full string orchestra and smaller ensembles. The week culminates with a spectacular Friday concert for family and friends at 12:30 p.m. showcasing the group’s talent. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 pandemic precautions, family and friends are not permitted on campus to watch our performance, but a recording will be available.
