Located at Mt.

– Small ensembles of mixed instruments

– Large ensemble (woodwind choir)
– Reed making and adjustment
– Breathing and air support
– Audition and performance preparation
– Rehearsal techniques

In addition to small and large ensemble rehearsals, there will be daily masterclasses for each instrument group covering a variety of topics.  Special guests are frequently brought in to perform and work with the students.  Past guests have included chamber groups from the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and local military bands, instrument repairmen, yoga instructors and many local college professors.

Parent Testimonials:

“Our daughter had never played with an ensemble before and this camp was an excellent experience.  The camp staff was so knowledgeable and helped the kids learn in a fun atmosphere.  Our family was so impressed with all the group performances at the recital on the last day.”

“Our son really benefited from the camp.  The music selections were at just the right level, and the instruction was excellent.  He also made new friends and had a great time!”

Why Chamber Music?

Chamber music is a form of classical music composed for a small group of musicians, each with their own part to play.  Students attending The Gallery Winds Chamber Music Camp will learn leadership and collaboration skills.  Each student will be personally responsible for their musical contribution during camp.  Performing in small ensembles, students will develop confidence and stage presence.

Please note that as interest in The Gallery Winds Chamber Music Summer Camp has grown, space is limited.  We will have a limit to the number of students per instrument we can accept.  Submitting the registration form may not guarantee acceptance into the camp.  We will attempt to accommodate as many students as possible!  If there is a student we are unable to accept, you will be notified as soon as possible.  A waiting list will be held in case any spots open.
