The Program:
The Summer Chamber Music Institute is a week-long overnight camp for String Players, Pianists, and Guitarists entering grades 9-12. Students have the opportunity to interact with world-class musicians and music educators from the MostArts Festival Orchestra residency. Our goal is to provide positive and creative experiences for musical and personal growth for every student, while having a great time at our beautiful Upstate NY campus.

In this camp, students will be exposed to and participate in daily chamber music coaching, private lessons focused on mastering assigned chamber music repertoire, Masterclasses, Faculty Recitals, and a Student Chamber Music Performance on the last day for family and friends. Students have an opportunity to work on technique and explore various styles of chamber music playing.

Auditions are not required to be admitted, however all students should have a minimum of 3 full years of experience on their primary instrument. We do not accept beginners. You will discover new challenges to further your growth as a musician, make new friends, during an incredible week of music at the Summer Chamber Music Institute at Alfred University.
