Stony Brook Community Music Program

Summer Chamber Music Camp


August 7 - 12, 2017
10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., each day at the Stony Brook University Music Building
Final concert at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, August 12th at the Staller Center for the Arts


This week-long day camp will focuses on developing important chamber music skills which help young string players build confidence and acquire critical musicianship skills that can make them better orchestra players and soloists. Each day of the camp, participants will receive coachings and take part in daily seminars/demonstrations led by professional musicians and chamber music coaches.  The camp will culminate with each group performing on the final concert that will be open to the public. 

Individual string players or pre-formed groups are welcome to audition for this new chamber music opportunity.  Open to students of all levels of chamber music experience.

Important note: This is a day camp. There are no overnight accommodations available.
