We encourage anyone wanting a more intensive chamber music experience to also register for Chamber Days which begins on June 13th. You may do so by selecting "Chamber Days" for registration. This seminar is limited to the first 32 students to register.

Please note: Children under the age of 12 will have to be accompanied by an adult the entire time. 

The Advanced String Camp is certainly the highlight of our institute for advanced students. Most participants are junior high school and high school students.The camp is for both Suzuki graduates and traditional students who have reached the advanced concerto level. The camp is not a Suzuki program, so traditional students who meet the playing level requirements feel very comfortable participating. Advanced String Camp students are especially encouraged to apply for the noon recitals.

ASC will include five days which will enable you to have more time in master classes and to perfect your chamber performances and orchestra skills. Social activities will be provided throughout the week with a social on Tuesday night.

Five Hour Core - The Advanced String Camp curriculum includes a master class, chamber group, group performance class and two hours each day of orchestra. The pieces listed below are to be prepared for the group performance class. The performance class is just one part of the overall string camp experience, and many students may be performing more advanced music in their master classes. The purpose of the group performance class is to expand repertoire, create camaraderie and the opportunity to work with the guest artist teachers.

*Note - Be sure that you memorize the pieces listed under the Code (V10, Q5, C5, etc.) you registered for.

Violinists who would like to play the viola in their chamber groups, e-mail your request to ISSI Chamber Assistant,
