Chamber Music In the Mountains
at Echo Glen
July 25 - 31
Tucson Junior Strings will again be presenting its summer chamber music camp this year (2021) on Mount Lemmon.
Dates: July 25 through July 31
Location: Southern Pines Camp on Organization Road
Accommodations: two and three story dormitories with bunk beds, dining hall with three meals a day prepared by a kitchen crew made up of parents, rehearsal tents (out of doors), full court volleyball and basketball areas
Format: pre-registered players will be sent music for one movement of a professional string quartet piece which they will prepare ahead of time. At the camp they will have two rehearsals a day on that music as a quartet. They will also have two coachings a day by a professional quartet coach. There will also be a student level orchestra that will rehearse in the evenings on one professional level orchestral work. A chamber music seminar will be presented daily by a well-known professional chamber musician.
Faculty: Each student group will be coached by a professional string player who makes their living, at least in part, by playing chamber music. Those professionals plus the seminar coach, called the Senior Coach, will also form an ensemble and rehearse every day for the students to watch. At the end of the week the faculty will give their own concert. \
Fee: The student fee is $650. This includes overnight stay, three meals a day plus possible snacks, coaching, tuition, music, and insurance.
Student qualifications: Students must have turned 14 as of 1 July this year, and meet the technical requirements for regular Junior Strings Chamber II level orchestra (see web page at tucsonjuniorstrings.org)
