Youth symphony band camp registration is now open
Green Mountain Youth Symphony’s Creative Arts and Music Program (GMYS CAMP) will be held Sunday, August 5, through Saturday, August 11, at Northern Vermont University-Johnson in Johnson.
GMYS CAMP is open to all intermediate-advanced students of all orchestral instruments, regardless of whether they can play with us during the regular concert season. Registration is open now, with an early bird discount available until March 10. Auditions will be held later in the spring.
During camp, every musician will get to work with a variety of professionals on chamber music, eurhythmics, and orchestra music. Each student also has a private lesson during the week. There is time each day for individual practice and a variety of recreational activities — both organized and spontaneous. The camp will also offer several musical and non-musical electives during the week.
Artistic Director Bob Blais said, “We have been holding this summer program at the college since 2006, and it has become an integral part of our program for our intermediate-advanced musicians. GMYS CAMP is very popular with our students. Many of them tell us it’s the highlight of their musical year.”
