About

Introducing the 2018 Mountain Area Chamber Music Festival! Join us for a week-long program of vocal and strings chamber music open to rising 6th- through 12th-graders (rising 4th- and 5th- graders with comprehensive musical backgrounds may be considered), led by world-renowned master clinicians and coaches. Daily vocal and strings coachings will be accompanied by masterclasses, musical enrichment activities and in-depth artistic training culminating in a combined concert showcasing the students’ development. A placement audition is required for camp participants, and pre-formed chamber groups are welcomed!

The Mountain Area Chamber Music Festival will meet from 9am to 3pm Monday, June 25 through Friday, June 29th, and for a dress rehearsal and performance on Saturday, June 30th. Monday through Friday classes will be held at the beautiful Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen.
