This camp is open to students ages 12–18 (campers who are 18 and have not yet matriculated at a college are eligible to attend camp). No audition is required for admittance; all levels are welcome, although it is required that participants have at least one year of prior study on their instrument (violin, viola, cello, upright bass). Campers must provide their own instrument. 12 and 13 year olds should consider if they are ready for an immersive camp experience.
The String Scholars camp features: daily orchestra rehearsals and finale concert with Richard Auldon Clark, conductor of the Butler Symphony Orchestra; daily sectionals and technique class with Butler faculty and music majors; other typical college music classes such as music theory and electives. Additional classes typically include drumming, dance, and keyboard.
Camper information packets containing additional scheduling information, what to bring, and where to report will be emailed to all participants approximately one week prior to camp.
