    Summer Piano Ensemble Camp

    Monday, June 20th, 2016 - Friday, June 24th, 2016

    This is the Guild second pilot Piano Ensemble camp.

    Young pianists and instrumentalists from ages 10 to 16 years old will have the opportunity to hone their musicianship through small ensemble work. The camp is focused on the process of rehearsal and the development of the skills necessary to play in small groups.

    This is our second pilot program and we reached capacity very quickly with students playing piano, violin, viola, cello and clarinet.

    On the last day, our 16 campers will perform works by St Saëns, Williams, Haydn, L. Mozart, McMichael, and more.
