String Summer Camp
Strictly Strings!

July 17-21, 2017

Spend several days among other string students and embrace your love for your instrument! The String Camp is designed for string students who study privately and would like to connect with and be inspired by fellow string students. Students will prepare a variety of repertoire prior to the camp, participate in chamber music, group classes, listen to presentations of various music related topics and explorations in music history, theory and string literature.

String students with at least one year of instruction are welcome to register.
