Summer Strings Camp

Summer 2023 Dates: July 24th – 28th

Are you ready for Summer Strings Camp?

Strings Camp is a fabulous way to keep your music skills sharp and growing over the summer. It’s a fun way to spend time with your orchestra peers and meet new friends! If you’re new to the Philharmonic Orchestra or planning to audition, this is a great way to become involved so that you feel that sense of belonging from day 1 when orchestra rehearsals begin in the fall. 

Strings camp dates for Summer 2023 will be July 24th – 28th.

What can you expect from Summer Strings Camp?

  • Stringed instruments and Rock Music?  YES!
  • Get individualized attention in a small group setting while still gaining experience playing with an ensemble
  • Tailor the experience by choosing from one of two tracks: beginner and intermediate (if you’re in the Philharmonic Orchestra, then the intermediate track is right for you!).
  • Be challenged by fun music taught by Mrs. Liticker and Mrs. Gardin
  • Earn your conductor’s baton by attending a conducting class to help you learn more about expression, group playing, and musicality
  • Grow in rhythm skills through a percussion class led by Mr. Lynskey (yes, he’s bringing drum sets)
  • Impress your parents with an end-of-camp concert in the beautiful Great Hall at the Kemp Center for the Arts (you know they want to take pictures and video)
  • Watch for special workshops throughout the week on many subjects about music and being a musician!
