Orchestra Programs & Camps

For the students who perform well in the Festival, the judges will 'rank' the performers in each festival session.  This list will be sent to the various string camp administrators for them to decide on recruitment and scholarships.  Other summer music camps and/or orchestra programs may or may not request this same list.  It will be available to them, but it is their prerogative whether or not to employ this list for recruitment and scholarships.

If you or your students desire to attend a certain camp, please follow the guidelines as listed on the camp's website.  We will endeavor to keep this list updated, but please refer to the camp or program's website for current information.  Click to view more about each camp or program:
