If you play violin, viola, or cello, Cap Summer Strings offers you a week of musical discovery. Guided by outstanding coaches and musicians, you’ll have a blast playing and writing music with friends your age in small groups. From playing chamber and Celtic music to using the latest computer applications to write down your musical imaginings, you’ll be immersed in all aspects of the music you love. At the end of the week, you can showcase your new expertise by playing for your peers and your parents. You also get to present your own composition—to be performed by the faculty! Pack a healthy lunch and bring lots to drink. Supervised lunch break provided.
Note: Novice and advanced players welcome. Students are placed in ensembles according to age and playing ability. A minimum of two years’ playing experience and basic music-reading skills are required for the novice level. You will be scheduled for a playing assessment before the camp starts (this entails a $20 fee for new students). Some of the repertoire will be mailed in advance—please take this to your regular music instructor and begin learning it in advance of the camp. Registration deadline: Extended to May 31. Audition week: Due to the registration date being extended, new audition dates will be announced soon. Please watch this site for updates. Orientation meeting: Sunday, July 7, 3 - 4 pm.
