Lazy days of summer got your playing a bit rusty? Come to Boot Camp this August (August 2-6, 2017) to revive your playing and prepare for the start of the school year! We will prepare a performance of ensemble music on an intense schedule of rehearsals and classes while having a ton of fun and food. There is an additional opportunity to attend ILMEA Audition Preparation classes with a mock audition. A concert on August 6 will wrap up the week as we share our work with our friends, family and the community.
No auditions are required for Boot Camp, just a desire to make music and have fun! Boot Camp is open to any high school violinist or violist, including incoming freshman.
Peace Memorial Church in Palos Park, Illinois, is our host. The facilities are beautiful and the church community is warm and welcoming. We are very lucky to have such a beautiful space to make music!
Please see the schedule for more specifics on class times. Registration is due by July 20 and tuition must be paid in full before the first day of camp. You must attend all of camp, including the performance, and there will be no tuition refunds except emergencies with Ms. Yeager’s approval. Scholarships may be available in cases of financial hardship.
