Chamber Music Camp at Bear Crossing

June 24 @ 9:30 am - June 28 @ 4:30 pm

Note: The Bear Crossing Camp is privately owned and administered by Simon and Agnès Maurer. It is advertised here with permission.
Summer Chamber Music camp sponsored in part by ACMP.

Chamber Music Camp at Bear Crossing is for people of all ages and abilities* who enjoy making music and learning the skills of playing with others.

  • The goal of this camp is to improve Chamber Music playing skills, learn new repertoire, and enjoy a week of music making in a relaxed country setting.
  • We accept all levels, and all ages of players. Basic playing and counting skills are required.
  • We will explore the treasures of the classic string quartet repertoire, as well as fun arrangements of more popular music.
  • Besides playing in Chamber Music groups you will be able to get pointers to improve your technique.
  • Sight reading sessions will be available for three days out of five. If necessary, teachers will lead the group, reading through a Chamber Music piece together, or one on a part.
  • Daily home made lunches by chef Agnès Maurer are included in tuition.

* Basic rhythm and note reading skills required.

Bear Crossing Music Camp is situated in the hills of Pennsylvania. A small creek flows next to our concert hall.
