Little Mission Chamber Ensembles – Summer Day Camp: 2017

Little Mission Chamber Ensembles

Collaborative Music Day Camp


Summer 2017


Playing music with others is such a joyful and exciting experience, especially for young musicians. If your child has a desire to collaborate with other young musician friends and expand their repertoire in a fun and engaging setting, this camp is perfect for them!


During camp, each child will receive one-on-one instruction, coaching in a small ensemble, and attend theory, sight-singing, and ear training sessions. In addition, each student will participate in group activities that cultivate general musicianship and team skills. Students will be split into groups based on prior experience and interests. Our talented faculty, all conservatory trained, will create an exciting camp week full of inspiration and challenges that will help your child grow musically.


The camp week will culminate in a Final Showcase on Saturday, June 17th at 10:30 AM.


All instruments and voice.
