Our mission is to nurture and inspire the whole person through chamber music. Regardless of age or level, chamber music is the ultimate music educator and at the same time the most fun! In chamber music, small groups of three to five players are formed, each player has a unique part which combines with the others to create a beautiful whole sound. Our unique method of carefully matching students’ levels and providing appropriate repertoire has resulted in years of happy musicians and lovers of chamber music. Our amazing faculty is chosen for their love of chamber music and inspiring teaching methods.
This year we’re thrilled to have two wonderful Master Class teachers: VSO Concertmaster Dale Barlthrop and Heilwig von Koenigslow. Also, we’re excited to announce the new “Mentoring Quartet in Residence” program, a scholarship and stipend position consisting of 4 dedicated teenage musicians who will form a string quartet while gaining experience mentoring our younger participants.
Among regular daily chamber music coachings are art classes, composition classes and guest master classes. The session closes with a concert on Saturday evening. Our camp is open to string and piano students between the ages of 5-20 who have had at least one year of private lessons. Please note that Junior PIANO is already full.
Join us this summer for a fun musical experience that will change your life!
