All campers are required to participate in at least one of the large ensembles while at camp. The weekly schedule is set up to accommodate students who want to perform in both band and choir, or wind players who want to perform in both band and orchestra. The choir and band are open to all who are interested, without audition. The orchestra is open to all string players, without audition, but wind and percussion players must audition for orchestra membership. There will be chair-placement auditions right after registration for instrumentalists involved in orchestra and band. Students should bring a prepared piece to play for the audition.
Workshops are classes which meet multiple periods each day. Membership is limited in size, and auditions are required for admission to some of the workshops.
The workshops listed below are our 2017 offerings:
Classes meet once each day, outside of the ensemble rehearsal times. With the few exceptions noted below, there are no prerequisites for any of these classes. Students are encouraged to take one class each class period (periods 3 & 4), and to list a second choice class for each period in case their first-choice class has already been filled by earlier registrants. Many classes do have enrollment limits, so early registration is suggested.
